Betraying Hitler by Lucas Delattre

In 1942, a lone clerk in the German Foreign ministry offered to spy for free for the Allied forces. Over the following three years, Fritz Kolbe risked his life to smuggle more than 1,600 top secret Nazi documents, from reports of missile developments to plans to deport Jews to the death camps. Only recently declassified by the CIA, Kolbe's exploits are detailed here for the first time.


* 'Betraying Hitler draws a fascinating picture of Fritz Kolbe as an example of quiet resistance. It shows his courage, his firm convictions, but also the tragic limits of his influence on events during the war.
Joscha Fischer, Vice Chancellor and Foreign Minister of Germany

* 'Racy, pacy, novelistic... Betraying Hitler presents a powerful picture of how easily a sophisticated society can collapse into Hobbesian barbarity and chaos.
Nigel Jones, Literary Review
