Summary
John Randall looks at you with the same piercing blue-grey gaze he turned on SS Hauptsturmfuhrer Josef Kramer, the commandant of the notorious Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, in 1945. Randall was the first Allied officer into the camp that would reveal the horrors of the Holocaust to the world. Randall is a modest man who hates injustice and brutality, the cornerstones of the Nazi regime, and is proud of the part he played in the downfall of the Third Reich. He cares equally passionately about his old regiments, Phantom and the SAS, and has fond memories of former comrades in both units and friends he made among the French underground movement, the Maquis. Now in his 90s, Randall was one of that league of extraordinary gentlemen handpicked for suicidally dangerous missions behind enemy lines, in North Africa, Italy, France and Germany throughout WWII
