In the 1970s news broke that former Nazis had escaped prosecution and were living the good life in the United States. Outrage swept the nation, and the public outcry put extreme pressure on the U.S. government to investigate these claims and to deport offenders. The subsequent creation of the Office of Special Investigations marked the official beginning of Nazi-hunting in the United States, but it was far from the end.
Thirty years later, in November 2010, the New York Times obtained a copy of a confidential 2006 report by the Justice Department titled “The Office of Special Investigations: Striving for Accountability in the Aftermath of the Holocaust.” The six-hundred-page report held shocking secrets regarding the government’s botched attempts to hunt down and prosecute Nazis in the United States and its willingness to harbor and even employ these criminals after World War II.
Drawing from this report as well as other sources, Spies, Lies, and Citizenship exposes scandalous new information about infamous Nazi perpetrators, including Andrija Artuković, Klaus Barbie, and Arthur Rudolph, who were sheltered and protected in the United States and beyond, and the ongoing attempts to bring the remaining Nazis, such as Josef Mengele, to justice.

Review:

"Well-researched state secrets forced into the light of truth."—Kirkus (Kirkus)

“A cautionary tale of how the immediate quest for power trumps conventional morality every time.”—Marc Milner, professor of history at University of New Brunswick and director of the Brigadier Milton F. Gregg Centre for the Study of War and History
  (Marc Milner 2017-02-27)

“A fascinating look into the world of Nazi criminals and the organizations that pursued them—sometimes effectively and sometimes not.”—Geoffrey Megargee, author of War of Annihilation: Combat and Genocide on the Eastern Front, 1941
  (Geoffrey Megargee 2017-02-27)

“A compelling story of the difficulties in rendering justice after the Second World War. . . . Spies, Lies, and Citizenship tells a disturbing story that focuses on the ambiguity surrounding the legacy of the Good War that allowed some perpetrators of war crimes to escape justice. It is also an account of determined investigators in the U.S. Department of Justice committed to sniffing out these criminals and deporting them from American shores.”—G. Kurt Piehler, director of the Institute on World War II and the Human Experience at Florida State University (G. Kurt Piehler 2017-02-27)
