Even as the Gestapo posted his photo in public, he lived a daringly adventurous life, replete with fine restaurants and beautiful women, all the while managing to elude the Nazis until he could escape in the most unlikely of waysby bicycling to Switzerland."A catalog of hairbreadth escapes, clever ruses, and brazen coups" (New York Times),The Forgeris an astonishing and remarkably buoyant tale of wartime heroism and survival.
