Six Million Accusers” is a historical novel reliving the hunt for, and capture of one of history’s most evil criminals – a leading Nazi named Adolf Eichmann.
Having disappeared after WWII, members of an Israeli organization search the world for Eichmann, hoping to one day capture one of the men responsible for brutally massacring millions of Jews, and others. Following any tip possible, eventually they discover a Jewish father and daughter who swear Eichmann quietly lives in their community, under a new name. The search for Eichmann ramps up, and the agents begin to fervently believe they have found their man.
As they get closer and closer, a plan must also be created to capture Eichmann, and secretly transport the villain back to Israel. Is it really Eichmann? And if so, what complications may arise that might destroy their plans to have this notorious Nazi held responsible for his crimes?
“Six Million Accusers” is based on historic detail, and David Lawrence- Young does an excellent job reliving the hunt for, and capture of Adolf Eichmann. Well written and easy to read, “Six Million Accusers” should be a staple of the educational discussion of WWII and the aftermath.
Hello everyone and welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for Six Million Accusers: Catching Adolf Eichmann. I’d like to say thank you to both D. Lawrence-Young and GMTA Publishing for giving me the honor of reading and reviewing this awesome book!
Six Million Accusers is a historical fiction novel based on the historical facts surrounding the mission to capture Adolf Eichmann, a high ranking Nazi responsible for the death of six million innocent Jews during World War II. It is the story of bringing him to justice after years of his evading it. Although the narrative is fiction, it reads like a first hand account of the activities leading to and after the capture of Eichmann.
This was an emotional read for me, as is pretty much every book I’ve read so far that has dealt with the subject of the Holocaust. I found myself in tears multiple times throughout my reading of this book. This is the first book I have read from D. Lawrence Young and I will be reading more…he has written this story so beautifully that I felt like I was actually there witnessing these events and looking into the eyes of one of history’s most terrible men.
I definitely learned a lot from reading this book. Although I had read about Adolf Eichmann before and knew a little bit about his relationship to Hitler and the Holocaust, prior to reading this book I hadn’t really known any specific details or the breadth of his involvement.
I am so glad that I was able to read this book and have the opportunity to share it with you today, I think that anyone can enjoy this book and be touched by it. It reminded me of the many failures and successes of our human history, the fragile nature of all of our lives and the fact that even if it takes awhile, good always conquers evil. Six Million Accusers is an interesting, powerful, fast paced, and beautifully written book that you will not want to put down. Read this book! I have 20 ebook copies of this book to give away, please leave a comment to get your copy, come back and share your thoughts with me!
Happy Reading everyone!

All the nooks and crannies of rival candidates and claims are traversed in interesting locations and often funny encounters. The SAC has got under the Shakespeare-loving and teaching David Young’s skin and he has turned this irritant into a pleasure to read and from which there is much to learn.
