"Michael Salter's contribution to our understanding of the dynamics of intelligence operations and war crimes cannot be underestimated." - David Fraser, Journal of Law and Society, vol. 32 no. 2 (June 2008) "Salter's book will appeal to scholars of wartime intelligence and postwar is important for what it tells us about the multifaceted and nuanced relationship between intelligence and justice, for its incorporation of the OSS into the narrative of the pre-history of the Nuremberg Trials, and for its new revelations on the long afterlife of Operation Sunrise." - Norman J.W.
