More than 10,000 Germans and Austrian fled Nazi persecution and served with British forces during the Second World War. At the end of the conflict, many returned to the land of their birth with the Intelligence Corps and Military Government, to begin the process of rebuilding Germany and Austria. Some were involved with the hunt for Nazi war criminals, others interrogated prisoners of war or gathered evidence from the concentration camps and interviewed the survivors. Two of them even provided close protection for Winston Churchill and Clement Attlee. They were also instrumental (in the west, at least) in re-educating the people about the values of democracy and a free society. This fascinating book, which is based on first-hand accounts from veterans, provides an important insight into how Germany and Austria were rebuilt after the end of the Nazi tyranny.
