I'm looking for a novel by an English speaking author which is about — as the headline mentions — nazi dwarves that owe, if I remember correctly, their condition to genetic engineering and live in an old castle. It's pure pulp fiction, of course, but I don't remember much more about it...

And one of them is named Adolph."
