Wolfsangel documents the downing of an American B-24 bomber crew over Germany during World War II, the airmen's lynching by an enraged mob in the city of Russelsheim, and the extraordinary postwar trial that sent five civilians to the gallows. August Nigro wrestles with the moral dilemmas that the Russelsheim case raises about total war and the prosecution of war crimes. Wolfsangel is essential reading for anyone who grapples with the aftermath of war.
