Churchill's German Army: The Germans who Fought for Britain in World War Two

10,000 Germans and Austrians fought for Britain during World War Two. Having escaped Nazi Germany with their lives, this was their chance to fight back.

They served in all theatres of war, including dangerous operations behind enemy lines with SOE, Commandos and Raiding Forces. Others were involved in the battles at sea, top secret intelligence duties, and elite infantry regiments.

They fought, and many died, fighting on the front line for the country that had saved them from Hitler’s tyranny. Based on eyewitness accounts and interviews with veterans, Helen Fry pieces together their extraordinary story and their sacrifice.


"A fascinating story, well told."

Military Illustrated

"Vital reading to understand the bravery of those who returned to fight against the system which had rejected them."
