Winner of the JQ Wingate Prize 2015 Shortlisted for the Costa Biography Award 2013 'A gripping thriller, an unspeakable crime, an essential history, a scrupulously dispassionate narrator.' - - John Le Carré UK paperback final cover.jpg The extraordinary true story of the German Jew who tracked down and caught the Kommandant of Auschwitz Hanns Alexander was the son of a prosperous German family who fled Berlin for London in the 1930s. Rudolf Höss was a farmer and soldier who became the Kommandant of Auschwitz Concentration Camp and oversaw the deaths of over a million men, women and children. In the aftermath of the Second World War, the first British War Crimes Investigation Team is assembled to hunt down the senior Nazi officials responsible for some of the greatest atrocities the world has ever seen. Lieutenant Hanns Alexander is one of the lead investigators; Rudolf Höss his most elusive target. Moving from the Middle-Eastern campaigns of the First World War to bohemian Berlin in the 1920s; from the horror of the concentration camps to the trials of Belsen and Nuremberg, it is both a gripping, moving and deeply felt work of history, and the story of a remarkable quest for justice. In Hanns and Rudolf Thomas Harding reveals for the very first time the full, exhilarating account of Höss’ capture, and of two lives that diverged, and intersected, in an astonishing way.
