2 nsia-ODESSA/ODESSA 02.pdf. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. I do not want to say much as the fun is being surprised during the reading. Forsyth’s particular skill lies in making both sides’ (actually three, in this case) stories fascinating, and in effectively building the tension as the they head toward their inevitable showdown. The next day Miller decides to hunt a Nazi camp commandant, but not for the reasons we suspect. The core story is top-level thriller stuff, absolutely outstanding. Miller decides to proceed on his own, and the book turns into a kind of procedural thriller as he doggedly pursues sources of information across Germany and it starts to dawn on him that no one is particularly interested in hunting down ex-Nazis. His attention is turned to one incident he reads over and over again. And while it isn’t quite the classic that his first novel is, it’s a damn fine yarn just the same. Then there is the MOSSAD.

Seven of the eight books Weisberg published after Whitewash were about the Kennedy assassination.


If John F. Kennedy hadn't been shot, Peter Miller would not have pulled over to listen to the radio announcement.

Manny times you think Forsyth is going off on some tangent and not focusing on the main story; then with out warning the information makes sense later on. After reading "The Day of the Jackal", I thought that there couldn't be a better suspense thriller than this, but I still hadn't read "The Odessa File". There are no reviews yet. remove-circle Share or Embed This Item. THE ODESSA FILE is one of Frederick Forsyth's classics. The journalist eventually finds and confronts the Nazi. Over … Alles Gute! Cleverly written, meticulously researched, and absolutely readable, THE ODESSA FILE recounts the story of Peter Miller, a young German crime reporter who decides to infiltrate the secret Nazi support network in the early 1960s in order to discover the whereabouts of Captain Eduard Roschmann, "The Butcher of Riga," who sent some 80,000 people to their deaths in the Riga Ghetto.While Miller's outrage at the twisting of Germany by the Nazis is real and intense, his motivations are unclear...until the O. Henry ending. One word of warning – there is a frankness in the level of detail in this book concerning the activity at the Riga concentration camp that some may find rather unsettling. That all changes when, totally by chance, he comes into possession of a diary written by a recently deceased concentration camp survivor. He quickly discovers to his surprise that the newsmagazines aren't interested in the story, it's explained to him that no one wants to pay to read about horrors perpetrated on Jews in some other country. One thing became clear as I read The ODESSA File – Forsyth is not afraid to do his homework. The level of historical detail in this novel is extremely impressive. The story takes place in 1963-64 and centers on a young freelance German reporter, Peter Miller. I also could have done without the subplot involving the rockets for Egypt, as it distracted from the more interesting story of Miller's hunt. Wikipedia - The Odessa File Offers quick summary / overview and other basic information submitted by Wikipedia contributors who considers themselves "experts" in the topic at hand. When Miller starts getting too close to the Odessa, his life is in grave danger. Its set in the early 1960's, where a young freelance German journalist comes across the personal diary of an old German Jew who's committed suicide. Roschmann was an officer in the notorious SS and became one of the heads of the concentration camp at Riga. Roschmann’s brutality and inhumanity earned him the nickname of “The Butcher of Riga.”. The combination of former Nazi influence in the police, along with the the realpolitik of the situation (live ex-Nazis vote, dead Jews do not), mean that the official channels are largely window dressing. This novel is lesenvergnuegen. That’s as much of the story as I care to divulge here (I’ve probably said too much already). Before long, Miller ends up on their radar and they determine he must be dealt with. Having only ever read one other Frederick Forsyth book (his 1971 debut, The Day of the Jackal), I had high hopes for The ODESSA File. But while doing so, he comes across a super-secret organization known as Odessa, which protects Nazi ex-SS members from being captured and brought to justice. Book Reviews.
