The Chase, Capture and Trial of Adolf Hitler
A searing dissection of the Nazi psyche, this book uniquely combines historical facts with fiction.
Operation Lucifer: The Chase, Capture and Trial of Adolf Hitler skillfully integrates suspense and unfeigned history in a way that few other works on this subject have been able to achieve. It is a sweeping panorama of the post-World War II era with a cast of hundreds of characters, ranging from Hitler and his henchmen to Truman, Eisenhower, Churchill, J. Edgar Hoover, the Dulles brothers, Stalin, Eva Peron, Fulgencio Batista, Castro, the Mafia, the Kennedys and so on.
This novel is a compilation of two books. Book I deals with the chase and capture of Hitler and his minions. Although the action shifts back and forth between different locations such as Hamburg, Munich, Malmo, Washington, New York, Havana, Rome, Barcelona, Paris and Buenos Aires, we never lose the thread of the narrative as the hero, Barton Q. Milburn, relentlessly hunts down his quarry.
Book II covers the dramatic trial of Hitler. Holocaust survivors testify about their ordeals and the unspeakable atrocities they witnessed. Readers will be lifted into the charnel house of Adolf Hitler and the Germans who supported his mad dream of racial cleansing - a dream, as Mr. Charnay points out at the end of the novel, that is still alive in some demented minds today.
Operation Lucifer: The Chase, Capture and Trial of Adolf Hitler will appeal to every segment of society and all age groups throughout the world. This is an exciting retrospective of the most violent period in world history.

He has been successively a leading New York journalist, a Washington lobbyist, an industrialist and a public relations advisor to political leaders, including Presidential candidates. His experience on Capitol Hill in Washington and backstage at several Presidential conventions gives him a unique view of the American political power brokers.
Mr. Charnay lives in a suburb of Los Angeles, where he headed Four Star International for 16 years. Currently, he has returned to writing. His last book was Target 1600, a political thriller. He also publishes The American Eagle, an occasional newsletter.
