Présentation de l'éditeur
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.

The last third takes place after the war. While some Nazis were captured and put on trial others managed to successfully go into hiding. Additionally both the Western Allies and the Soviets shifted their priorities from Nazi war crimes to the Cold War and many on both sides were eager to utilize Nazi expertise. (See: Operation Paper Clip). Churchill, who had commissioned the SAS was out of power and the teams were supposed to be disbanded. Mission commander William Barkworth along with several other team members “went dark”, managed to covertly to obtain government funding and continued to pursue those responsible for the deaths of their colleagues and the French patriots who assisted them, managing to bring many thought not all trial.
I thought it was well written and it provided a good perspective on the SAS's role during the war.
