SAS Nazi Hunters is the incredible, hitherto untold story of the most secret chapter in the SAS's history.
Officially, the world's most elite special forces unit was dissolved at the end of the Second World War, and not reactivated until the 1950s. Among their last actions was a disastrous commando raid into occupied France in 1944, which ended in the capture, torture and execution of 31 soldiers.
It can now be revealed that the SAS never was dissolved: it lived on, commanded personally by Churchill and hidden even from the British government. They were tasked with hunting through the ruins of the Reich for the SS commanders responsible for the murder of their comrades, including many who had escaped the failed justice of the Nuremberg trials. Along the way, they discovered before anyone else the full horror of Hitler's regime, and the growing threat from Stalin's Russia.
Still studied by the SAS today and a central part of their founding myth, the story of the Nazi hunters is now told by bestselling author Damien Lewis.
Great book, interesting read. Arrived within a couple of days from The Tank Museum .
Brilliant from the word go. Well written and explanatory. Facts and timeline are the core of this great read for anyone who's interested in WW2 and especially the SAS
Having read a few of Damien Lewis’ previous titles I was amazed to see this in the tank museum shop. Was delivered in just over 48 hours immaculate enjoyable and poignant of the Operation Loyton and the aftermath campaign. Well worth getting a copy. Thank you to all at the tank museum shop
