Not to be dismissed as just another account of past SAS derring-do. There is plenty of adventure in Damien Lewis's historical account but for me, the second half of the book proved especially compulsive reading as we follow the account of the specially tasked unit setting out to track down those who butchered and tortured SAS captives working behind the German lines. Their gratuitous use of torture, extending the pain and suffering of their captors makes for uncomfortable reading softened only by the incredible bravery of the British soldiers, the men who fought for justice and the French freedom fighters. The governments of Britain and America are tainted by their use of German war criminals, the cover-ups and impeding of justice, a shameful episode well-told by Damien Lewis. ~ Sue Baker

T-Force: The Forgotten Heroes of 1945, Sean Longden
The 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.
