The German Jew who bombed Berlin

Georg Franz Hein knew who he was: A German Jew who had been sent to London by his mother and gambled away the family fortune. But to everyone else, he was Peter Stevens, a pilot in the Royal Air Force who became one of the best escape artists among allied prisoners of war.

'Stevens' eventually settled in Canada, and it was not until some 17 years after his death that his son discovered his true identity.

Read the whole thing. It's a fascinating story.
