Lazy Sunday Service

I've made a start this weekend on Gerald Steinacher's Nazis on the Run: How Hitler's Henchmen Fled Justice. The book is an interesting analysis of the various ways in which Nazis, along with hundreds of thousands of stateless citizens and refugees, survived in post-war Europe and gained passage to other parts of the world. The book is marketed as a popular history tome, but is much more academic in its presentation and writing style. The big plus is it is full of information, the negative is that it could have done with a good edit to sort out repetition and poor structuring, and it is largely descriptive, failing to shift to explanation. More in the review once I've finished reading it.
