Throughout an astonishing criminal career, Johnny Ramensky was the foremost safe-blower of his era. His exploits and audacious escapes from maximum security prisons also helped make him a household name admired by some, notorious to others. But when the Second World War broke out, Ramensky joined the elite Commandos and his story became legend. Peacetime had brought Johnny Ramensky a hard upbringing in the Gorbals, a life of crime and long years in jail. War brought him the chance to serve his country and a new use for his expertise in explosives. Time after time he would show exceptional bravery as he was parachuted behind enemy lines to blow open the safes of Rommel, Goering and the German High Command. His mission was to secure documents vital to the war effort and it brought him the danger and excitement he had always craved. Gentle Johnny Ramensky is the remarkable story of a boy reared in poverty who became one of the world's most extraordinary safe-blowers both as a criminal and as a war hero who wore the Green Beret with pride.
