Sir Colin Gubbins, codename M, was director of the Special Operations Executive established by Churchill in 1940 to ‘set occupied Europe ablaze’. Drawing on declassified archives and full access to family papers, this first biography records his service in the First World War, Russia and Ireland. It then examines his wartime organization of intelligence gathering, resistance activity and sabotage, including the deployment of women agents behind enemy lines.
