Publisher's Summary

The Nazi Hunters is the incredible, hitherto untold story of the most secret chapter in the SAS' 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 murders 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 best-selling author Damien Lewis.
