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 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 best-selling author Damien Lewis.

    "My review of an excellent listening audio book"

    Excellent and very explicit review of event's that should not be forget about - the actions of such brave young men and women, and there Commander's determination to seek justice for their murder's by an appalling Nazi regime of men gives a very vivid account in detail.

    "Fascinating true story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Nazi Hunters to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the book but did enjoy the narration.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    You cannot really have a favourite character as there are some many brave men in this.


    Which character – as performed by Leighton Pugh – was your favourite?

    Just the general narration which was very gripping and poignant.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think you cannot fail to be moved when any part deals with the German atrocities whether singular or plural.

    Story
    "Insightful to a unique moment in history"

    First two thirds are particularly well told and engaging. You get the feeling that pieces of a jigsaw have been put together but there are gaps which are only the fault of the crazy secret nature of politicians at that time.
    You are left feeling pride and wonder at the men from that time that took unbelievable risks and the bravery of the civilians that helped them. A story worth telling and knowing.

    Story
    "The Nazi Hunters"

    when I first heard of this title I assumed it was a work of fiction.
    But within the first few paragraphs it became evident this was a grave misconseption on my part.
    I have persisted with it nevertheless and found it to be whilst not exactly enjoyable ( considering the subject matter)but very well researched and written/spoken .
    For anyone who has an interest in little known activities of the SAS during and just after the war then this is a must .
