Many of the tales about Hector Grant-Taylor, the legendary Second World War SOE instructor, who had an enormous influence on techniques and training in close quarters combat, are revealed to be apocryphal in this biography. Nevertheless the real story is no less colourful as the aristocratic-sounding army officer turns out to have been born plain Leonard Taylor in a working class area of Manchester and to have spent time in Wormwood Scrubs for bigamy.
