How was it possible that Karl and Ilse Koch, a seemingly ordinary couple who ran Nazi Germany's most infamous concentration camp, could have been loving parents while brutalizing prisoners and committing some of the worst atrocities known to mankind? This searing account by one of America's leading military historians exposes the whole ghastly story.
