I got the book last year and read it. The stories of elleraich in the navy really align with what I know of the man since being out. He is a man of opposites. He wasn't saving people from entrapment, but entrapping them. It would make sense that he would say that he would falsely claim to be a hero. SO many times you can hear he say "this runs OUT hypnosis", while hypnotizing; being ethical about raising a family, while treating his own wife and children. So many stories, well researched stories are in this book. So many lies revealed.
