Summary

#1 internationally bestselling author, war reporter, and award-winning historian Damien Lewis explores one of WWII’s most remarkable Special Forces missions during the Normandy landings on D-Day—and the extraordinary hunt that followed to take down a cadre of fugitive SS and Gestapo war criminals.

On the night of June 13th, 1944, a twelve-man SAS unit parachuted into occupied France. In a country crawling with enemy troops, their mission was to prevent Hitler from rushing his Panzer divisions to the D-Day beaches and driving the Allied troops back into the sea. It was a Herculean task, but no risk was deemed too great to stop the Nazi assault.

In daring to win it all, the SAS patrol were ultimately betrayed, captured, and tortured by the Gestapo before facing execution in a dark French woodland on Hitler’s personal orders. Miraculously, two of the condemned men managed to escape, triggering one of the most-secretive Nazi-hunting operations ever, as the SAS vowed to track down every one of the war criminals who had murdered their brothers in arms . . . all with Churchill’s covert backing.

Breathtaking and exhaustively researched, Churchill’s Band of Brothers reveals the untold story of one of the most daring missions of WWII.
