Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare

The Mavericks Who Plotted Hitler's Defeat

Giles Milton

In spring 1939, while the British government still clung to appeasement, the War Office set up a secret team of agents tasked with disrupting Nazi operations in the war to come. Drawing on archive material and the recollections of their families, Giles Milton brings to life the motley crew – punctilious Scotsman Colin Gubbins, caravan enthusiast and explosives expert Cecil Clarke, retired Marine William Fairbairn, secretary Joan Bright and others – and recounts their perilous mission.
