This is an auction for AUSCHWITZ AND THE ALLIES by Martin Gilbert.

"One cannot write too highly of Martin Gilbert's industry and literary abilities in making the world aware of the fullness of this hideous tale...A brilliant book"
- The Spectator

"Auschwitz is now a name of horror without parallel...Why did it remain unknown for so long? Martin Gilbert has set out to explore this contradiction."
- The Observer (UK)

"A story that needs to be remembered. It is here told by a real historian whose style is more moving by being objective and controlled."
- Hugh Trevor-Roper in The Times

"An unforgettable contribution to the history of the last war."
- Jewish Chronicle

Amazon.com review:

"When Hitler announced that the result of the war in Europe would be 'the complete annihilation of the Jews', he did so in 1942, not only in public, but before an enormous crowd in Berlin. The Allies heard, but they did not listen. In 1944, Allied reconnaissance pilots, searching out industrial targets in the area, repeatedly photographed Auschwitz. The pictures, apparently overlooked by the Allies, were routinely filed in government archives and not examined until 1979. First-hand reports on the horrors of the death camps came to the West by 1944 in the person of two escaped Auschwitz prisoners. Their testimonies, and those of subsequent escapees, were either ignored or dismissed. Despite the fact that Churchill himself had ordered feasibility studies for air strikes on Auschwitz, the RAF did nothing and passed the buck to the Americans, who also did nothing. This book explains why."
