    This is the first English translation of Sune Persson's critically acclaimed 2002 study of Sweden's rescue operation of prisoners from Nazi concentration camps on a famous transport of white buses. Despite saving tens of thousands of lives, the mission was fraught with conflict and controversy, including negotiations between its leader Folke Bernadotte and Heinrich Himmler. Now including new archive material and previously unpublished photographs, this important book seeks finally to untangle the truth about Sweden's biggest ever humanitarian operation.
