Nazi Novel Makes You Dizzy

Is the world ready for
another nazi-hunting novel?
The answer, of course,
seems to be that as long as
the public will buy, the pub-
lishers will sell.
"No Earth For Foxes"
(Delacorte Press) is the lat-
est nazi-hunting book. It is
written by Manning 0'-
Brine, an _ex-British secret
agent turned author and
playwrite.

O'Brine served behind the
lines and was even captured
by the Gestapo. He man-
aged to escape and served in
France, Italy, Algeria and
Yugoslavia. In his book he
certainly displays his venom
for the nazi beast, and
rightly so.
