Product description

Review

The best true spy story I have ever read -- John le Carré

[A] captivating espionage tale. In a feat of real authorial dexterity, Macintyre accurately portrays the long-game banality of spycraft-the lead time and persistence in planning-with such clarity and propulsive verve that the book often feels like a thriller. Macintyre has produced a timely and insightful page-turner.Publishers Weekly

Meticulously researched, splendidly told, immensely entertaining and often very moving -- John le Carré on 'Agent Zigzag'

Impeccably researched, superbly told - by far the best book on the SAS in World War II -- Antony Beevor on 'SAS'

Thrilling. Ben Macintyre is the ideal narratorSpectator on 'SAS'

Thorough and highly entertaining. It would be nigh on impossible to praise it too highly ― Daily Express on 'SAS'
