Per Wikipedia there seems to be a conterversy as to whether the Sefer Nachal Eshkol is a forgery. Four Rabanim from Germany wrote Tzidkas HaTzadik to defend Rabbi Auerbach.

Four prominent German rabbis (David Zvi Hoffmann, Abraham Berliner, Jacob Schor and Hanokh Ehrentreu) wrote a booklet published in Berlin in 1910 containing a defense of Auerbach named Tzidkat HaTzaddik

Where can one can obtain this defense of Rabbi Auerbach?

    It is important to note that the defense was pretty much "he was a rabbi so he must not be a forger". However, the evidence speaks for itself. Numerous rabbinic greats such as R. Chaim Heller, long ago identified it as a forgery, and the evidence in the last century has piled up. The nail is in the coffin of the Auerbach Eshkol.
