James Brady and his friend, Frank Stringer, originally joined an Irish regiment of the British Army and but for a twist of fate would have ended up fighting against the Nazis. Instead, having been captured by the Germans in Guernsey, they switched sides and were trained by German military intelligence. The pair were recruited to German special forces, and even had the distinctive blood group tattoo of the SS."
