"A graveyard in contemporary Israel has an unlikely visitor. The elderly gentleman from Japan, a former news correspondent, lays a bouquet of flowers at the tomb of one Adolf Kamil. For he remembers the tale of three Adolfs: Kamil, a Jew who grew up in Kobe, Japan, the son of a baker; Kaufmann, only child of a German consul stationed at that port city and his Japanese wife; and the Führer with whom the Far Eastern nation made common cause. A briskly paced political thriller, in this first part Message to Adolf takes us from the Nazi propaganda victory of the 1936 Berlin Olympics to the ravaging flames and atrocities of World War II. The disastrous education of Adolf Kaufmann in the ways and prerogatives of the master race begins" -- from publisher's web site.

Fantastic thriller, with some good comical features from time to time. Thoroughly absorbing.

Good artwork. Comical and serious in parts.
Sometimes maybe a little long in dialogue but generally an absorbing story.

A little more action espionage than im used to but still replete with familiar themes such as love defying all boundaries and the interconnected nature of all humans. Another great work by Tezuka!
