"Hanns Alexander was a German Jew who fled to Britain in 1938 and joined the British Army; in 1945 he was a member of the British War Claims Investigation Team. Rudolf Höss was the Kommandant of Auschwitz, where over a million Jews were murdered. In Hanns and Rudolf, author Thomas Harding, a great-nephew of Alexander, recounts in detail the lives of both men in the 1930s and '40s, bringing the narrative gradually to the point where Alexander captures Höss. Including Höss' confession and additional details about tracking and arresting Nazi war criminals, Hanns and Rudolf provides a gripping biography of the two men and a compelling piece of World War II history."
