During the Second World War, 10,000 German and Austrian refugees volunteered to fight for Britain. Over 90 per cent of them were Jews who had fled Nazi repression.
They served in dangerous operations behind enemy lines, on daring maritime raids and on top-secret intelligence duties. Others fought in major battles for the liberation of Europe, including the D-Day landings.
At the end of the war, they not only helped bring the perpetrators of the Holocaust to justice, but were involved in the reconstruction of post-war Europe and the restoration of democracy.
Fiercely loyal to Britain – the country that had saved their lives – these men and women became 'Churchill's German Army'.
Join Helen Fry for an insight into their extraordinary story, based on eyewitness accounts and interviews with veterans.
