The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare
Available in Stock
Under the umbrella of the Special Operations Executive, Churchill formed a new kind of elite commando force after France fell in 1940. The units, manned by a group of misfits, eccentrics and free thinkers, defied the normal rules of war, operating secretly and deniably deep in enemy territory. This book focuses on the missions of desperadoes such as Anders Lassen and Geoffrey Appleyard whose heroics paved the way for the formation of the SAS and SBS. Slightly off-mint.
