From the Back Cover:

 

Otto Skorzeny"The Most Dangerous Man in Europe” Otto Skorzeny, Germany’s top commando in World War II, remains one of the most famous men in the history of special forces. His extraordinary wartime career was one of high risk and adventure, and in this book he tells the full story. When Mussolini was imprisoned in Italy in 1943, it was Skorzeny who successfully planned the daring glider rescue, winning the Knight’s Cross and a promotion as a result. Skorzeny’s talents were brought into play again when he was sent to Budapest in 1944 to stop the Hungarian regent Admiral Horthy from signing a peace treaty with Stalin. Then dubbed “the most dangerous man in Europe” by the Allies, he was awarded the German Cross in Gold. A few months later, he took a critical role in the Ardennes offensive with a controversial plan to raise a brigade disguised as Americans and using captured Sherman tanks. Colleagues taken prisoner by the Allies spread a false rumor that Skorzeny was planning to assassinate Eisenhower, who was consequently confined to his headquarters for weeks. Skorzeny’s memoirs vividly depict commando action and are a key addition to special forces literature. Charles Messenger, a renowned historian who served twenty-one years with the British Royal Tank Regiment and thirteen with the British Territorial Army, contributed the foreword.
