    The Nazi Conspiracy is apparently a well known theory known to many World War II scholars and fans. I was only aware that the Big Three Conference in 1943 occurred in Teheran with Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt, and the famous picture of the three in history publications encouraged the world that victory was possible.The twist and turns in this book kept me up late turning the pages. Although I certainly knew that there were no attacks on the lives of Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt, the details convinced me that it could have happened. The authors do offer other opinions that the press ran with Roosevelt's offhand comment, "It would have been quite a haul if the Nazis had gotten all three of us. The British could have been jealous that they were not informed of the plot and had no part in its exposure that quite possibly saved the world.

    The Germans were losing. They were ruthless. I am on the side of the evidence that Meltzer and Mensch present. No one will never know for sure, but the authors kept me on the edge of my seat. Plus they filled in a lot of names and events that were important on both sides that I either forgot or never knew. This book is the best thriller I read in 2022. I thank BookBrowse for the advance reading copy.

    Nonfiction Thriller
    One of best books I read this year. Very smooth writing. I have read several Meltzer books, and have never been disappointed. This era of history happened when I was under six years old. School history classes give WW2 short shrift, and much of this was very new to me. I plan to reread it soon and maybe pick up some other books about the era. A winner!

    Like a spy novel
    This is an engrossing read, about a chapter of history of which I knew little. Unlike many nonfiction books, this one is well-paced, and moves along at a good clip. Much like a spy novel, the story details intrigue and subplots at a crucial time of WWII. We gain insights into the relationship of the Allied leaders, as well as their individual political situations. I think only history buffs will be disappointed by the relating of one of the great dramas of the war. For the average reader, with modest knowledge of WWII, this is informative and very entertaining. Recommended.
  • Peggy K. (San Marcos, CA)
    Winning the War
    This is a very good book about WWII but more importantly about the meeting of Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt. For those readers who don't like or don't want a lot of in-depth details, this book is perfect. The authors have put together a story that includes much of what the war was about, but also how far Adolf Hitler was willing to go to win. The meeting at Tehran was crucial for the Allies but more crucial was Hitler's plan to kill all three leaders. The book tells this story so well and without a single boring war story. It is an amazing tale.
  • Henry W. (Lake Barrington, IL)
    False Title
    The title of the book "The Nazi Conspiracy, the Secret Plot to Kill Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill " sells the book short. It is about the confluence of events that made it possible for the plot to exist. It is a well documented tale of the events and strategy which led up to the Tehran conference in November of 1943. The final commitment to what was to be the Normandy landing was the result of the conference.

    The author quite thoroughly documents the roles of history and each of the three leaders in carrying out leadership in World War II. The insights into Roosevelt's style and strategy showcase his political skills as well as overall leadership.The writing style provides the reader with engaging look at the personal contributions of the leaders to the war effort and resolution. It is one of the most readable history of the forces driving the war effort and result. Along the way one learns about such little known events as the rescue of Mussolini from the Italian prison by Nazi intelligence forces. It is book that not withstanding subject matter is hard to put down.
  • Colleen T. (Lakewood, CO)
    The Nazi Conspiracy
    This is an expertly written account of the events leading up to World War II, how America became involved and what events led up to the meeting of the big three and in consequence how the Nazi's learned of the meeting and their attempt to assassinate Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin. Meltzer and Mensch have done an ideal job of setting the scene, giving the reader a concise background update of the cause of WWII and how the U.S. became involved first through the bombing of Pearl Harbor and then in helping England and Russia to defeat the Nazi Party, and what transpired after the meeting.

    What I especially found informative are the concluding chapters that brings together all the conspiracies, whether fact or fiction, and postulates just what was really known about the incident and what happens to Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin. For anyone interested in World War II, the people who were a part of it and a great thriller/mystery, this book is a great read.
  • Dan W. (Fort Myers, FL)
    Intrigue At It's Best!
    I enjoy reading insightful and informative history as long the most important events are covered in the book. Indeed, the authors Meltzer and Mensch do admirably in focusing in on the highlights. I enjoyed the shorter chapters to read! A book I would highly recommend!
