In the tradition of Stephen Ambrose’s Band of Brothers comes this imaginative, previously untold story—Hitler in the Crosshairs. It’s the chronicle of a courageous young soldier fighting in WWII, the attempted capture of Adolph Hitler, and the subsequent saga of the dictator’s pistol. Based on true events, this is an adventure you won’t soon forget.
A Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist teams up with a university scholar in this compelling, untold historical tale of a young man’s courage at a critical time in United States history, and the saga of a dictator’s pistol that continues today.
The time is World War II. Young soldier Ira “Teen” Palm and his men burst into a Munich apartment, hoping to capture Adolph Hitler. Instead, they find an empty apartment … and a golden gun. As the authors trace the story of the man and the gun, they examine a time and place that shaped men like Palm and transformed them into heroes. They also follow the strange journey of Hitler’s pistol.
