John Churchill, nicknamed "Fighting Jack Churchill" and "Mad Jack", was a British army officer who fought in the Second World War, including serving as second in command of No. 3 Commando in Operation Archery, a raid on the German garrison at Vågsøy, Norway, on December 27, 1941. He also led No. 2 Commando as their commanding officer from their landing site at Catania in Sicily in July 1943, and led the Commandos in Yugoslavia in 1944 as a part of Maclean Mission. He was captured in 1944 under the mistaken belief that he was related to Winston Churchill and flown to Berlin for interrogation before being transferred to Sachsenahusen concentration camp. In April 1945, Churchill and approximately 140 other prominent camp inmates were transferred to Tyrol. A German army unit moved in to protect them, and they were eventually released.
On March 8, 1941, Churchill married Rosamund Margaret Denny. This pamphlet claims that she had a Jewish cousin, Ludwig Cohn, and uses that relation for the basis of its propaganda and an example of Jewish influence in England. The brochure includes numerous examples of relationships between high state officials and English aristocrats with people of Jewish descent, as the plan of this kind of German propaganda was to condemn the ruling class in England and lower them in the eyes of the people.
