Skorzeny's Secret Missions and Geheimkommando Skorzeny
Skorzeny's Secret Missions and Geheimkommando Skorzeny
By Otto Skorzeny and Otto Skorzeny
Dutton and Toth, 1950, 256419 pp.

War memoirs of the Nazi Commando who rescued Mussolini. While the English edition is greatly abridged--the sections in the German original dealing with his actions before 1943 and after his surrender are omitted--the loss is not great, since Skorzeny has little but a few exciting episodes to add to our picture of the war.
