Praise for Hitler's Warrior Alex Kershaw, New York Times bestselling author of The Bedford Boys and The Liberator "A brilliant study of a controversial but exceptional warrior in Hitler's Germany. To truly understand what the United States confronted in the Second World War, you must read this utterly absorbing story." Annie Jacobsen, New York Times bestselling author of Area 51 and Operation Paperclip "Hitler's Warrior is a spellbinding account of the brutal life and mysterious postwar death of SS Colonel Jochen Peiper. With the masterful control of twenty years of research, and a brilliant eye for detail, Danny Parker delivers a story about Himmler's personal adjutant that both horrifies and enthralls." Richard Breitman, American University and coauthor of FDR and the Jews "Jochen Peiper's life and career illuminate the inner thoughts of Heinrich Himmler, the relationship between the SS and Waffen-SS, and the balance between ideology and opportunism in Nazi Germany. In this detailed and well-written biography of Peiper, Danny S. Parker probes deeply into important questions of history and memory." Independent, 1/13/15 "Gripping." San Diego Book Review, 2/16/16 "An outstanding and meticulously researched biography of one of the fiercest supporters of the brutal and bloody Nazi regime."
