The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare By Giles Milton
Six gentlemen, a single purpose - the destruction of the Hitler war machine in the spring of 1939, a top secret organisation was founded in London: its purpose was to plot the destruction of the war machine of Hitler through spectacular acts of sabotage. The guerrilla campaign that followed was to prove every bit as extraordinary as the six gentlemen who led it.
Winston Churchill selected because they were insanely creative and carefully ungentlemanly. One of them, Cecil Clarke, was a Maverick engineer who had spent the futuristic caravans invent of the 1930s.
Now, his talents have been updated with more devious use: he built the dirty bomb used to assassinate Hitler favorite, Reinhard Heydrich. Another Member of the team, William Fairbairn, was pensioner portly with unusual passion: he is the global specialist in silent murder.
He was hired to train the guerrillas were parachuted behind enemy lines. Led by Scottish dapper Colin Gubbins, these men - as well as three other - formed a secret inner circle that planned the boldest attacks of sabotage of the second world war.
Winston Churchill called his Ministry of ungentlemanly war. The six "Ministers", assisted by a group of amazing women, were so effective that they changed all alone the course of the war.
Told with verve mark Giles Milton and eye for detail, the Ministry of ungentlemanly war is well documented and based on archival documents hitherto unknown. It's an exciting and lively adventure and flamboyant account and also, perhaps, the last great untold story of World War II.
