Summary
May 1945. In the aftermath of the Second Word War, the first British War Crimes Investigation Team is assembled to hunt down the senior Nazi officials responsible for the greatest atrocities the world has ever seen. One of the lead investigators is Lieutenant Hanns Alexander, a German Jew serving in the British Army. Rudolf Höss is his most elusive target. As Kommandant of Auschwitz, Hoss not only oversaw the murder of more than one million men, women, and children; he was the man who perfected Hitler's program of mass extermination. This is the story of two German men whose lives diverged, and intersected, in an astonishing way

Summary
Hanns Alexander, a German Jew, fled to Britain in 1938 and joined the British Army, joining the British War Claims Investigation Team in 1945. Rudolf Höss was the Kommandant of Auschwitz, where over a million Jews were murdered. Author Thomas Harding (a great-nephew of Alexander) provides a gripping biography of the two men and a compelling piece of World War II history -- including Alexander's eventual capture of Höss, Höss' confession, and details about the pursuit of Nazi war criminals. - Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
