This book is an exposť of a secret American operation during World War II to seize 4,000 Germans from Latin America and intern them in camps in the Texas desert. Rather than Nazi spies and saboteurs, they turned out to be a broad range of German immigrants, even Jewish refugees, most of whom posed no danger to national security. Research in seven countries reveals the diplomatic intrigues and human impact of a misguided policy that offers important lessons about US relations with Latin America, the failure to rescue victims of the Holocaust, and the treatment of civilians in wartime.

About the Author:

Max Paul Friedman is Assistant Professor of History at Florida State University. His work has been published in Diplomatic History, The Americas, and The Oral History Review. Before entering academia he was assistant producer for National Public Radio's 'All Things Considered' and a freelance writer published in the Washington Post, New York Newsday, Atlanta Constitution, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Orlando Sentinel, and other newspapers and magazines.

Review:

"...persuasively argued, lucidly written, and seasoned with black humor." American Historical Review

"Friedman...could not have produced a more timely and relevant book. Meticulously researched and well written..." German Studies Review

"A fascinating account...It is an excellently researched and superbly told story, one that relates with great care and nuance personal fates, diplomatic activities and economic warfare across three regions. The book represents international history at its best." H-GERMAN

"Friedman has set the bar very high for those who would follow him. [This] is an important addition to the study of this turbulent period and has set a new standard for research." Journal of American History

"In this time of war, there may be no better book to turn to than Friedman's engagingly written Nazis and Good Neighbors to reflect whether the government, or the mass media for that matter, ought to use the past of the "Good War" as precedent for today's "war on terrorism"...Friedman's work showcases the achievements of the new "'international history.'" Reviews in American History

"A stunning piece of historical sleuth work. This beautifully researched and compellingly argued account of the U.S. pursuit of German nationals in Latin America--written with the page-turning energy of a detective novel--opens a new window onto WWII-era policy of the U.S. toward its southern neighbors, and also illuminates the internal and international politics south of the border." Nancy Cott, Harvard University

"The research in U.S., Latin American, and German archives is extremely impressive. The story of bureaucratic overreach and bungling is grippingly told and compellingly argued." Daniel Rodgers, Princeton University
