Hitler's Secret War in South America, 1939-1945

By Stanley E. Hilton
Louisiana State University Press, 1981
353 pp. $20.00

Combining information and entertainment, this well-written thriller traces the World War II role of German military intelligence in Latin America. Notwithstanding its image of derring-do, the Abwehr was less a source of wartime pyrotechnics than a "plodding, utilitarian and rather mild-mannered organization whose plots and stratagems seemed-and often were-naïve and diffident."
