Oscar Gonzalez Lopez was born in 1969 and is a professor of History and Philosophy. He alternates teaching with historical research, collecting the oral memory of Second World War veterans. He has published several books and articles on German and Allied paratroopers, as well as on Spanish volunteers in the Wehrmacht (Blue Division). Several of his works have been translated into English, German and Norwegian.
"Gonzalez Lopez's book, originally published in Spain, is a very well-illustrated, quite detailed account of the liberation of Mussolini in late 1943 from a mountain top resort in eastern Italy. [...] In addition to his valuable debunking of the Skorzeny myth, Gonzalez Lopez has also given us an interesting and often insightful look at one of the most important special operations of the Second World War."--The NYMAS Review
