Hello Bernief,

I'm certain the book you're seeking is:

"Official Assassin : Winston Churchill's Sas Hit Team" by Peter Mason
Publisher: Phillips Pubns; ISBN: 0932572316

This title can be found at

For a background story, please see:

The Sunday Times, London (28 December 1997)
British Hit Squad 'executed Nazis'
"Peter Mason, 73, has described how he was recruited in May 1945 to
avenge the deaths of Special Operations Executive (SOE) spies murdered
in concentration camps and SAS men shot by the SS as saboteurs. The
mission was intended to punish war criminals not prominent enough to
face justice at Nuremberg and other trials conducted by the allies at
the end of the war."

The following reference states that indeed the author lives in

The Olson File
"One of the survivors of the British "hit squad" is Peter Mason who
lives in Montana"

I hope this is it!
