Six gentlemen, one goal only: the destruction of World War II machineIn in the spring of 1939, a secret organization was founded in London: its objective was to trace the destruction of Hitler’s spectacular war machine through acts of sabotageThe guerrilla campaign that followed was to prove just as extraordinary as the six gentlemen who carried it outWinston Churchill chose because they were very creative and carefully discourteous.One of them, Cecil Clarke, was a maverick engineer who had spent the 1930s inventing futuristic caravansNow his talents have been put to more devious use: he built the dirty bomb used to murder Hitler’s favorite, Reinhard HeydrichAnother member of the team, William Fairbairn, was a retired corpulent with a rare passion: he was the world’s leading expert in the silence of killing herHe was hired to train the guerrillas to parachute behind enemy linesLed by Scotsman Colin Gubbins, these men – along with the other three – formed an inner circle that planned the most daring sabotage attacks of World War IIWinston Churchill called his Discourteous Ministry WarThe six ministers, assisted by a formidable group of ladies, were so effective that they alone changed the course of the war.Says with Giles Milton of the brand to the verve and eye for detail, The Department of Discourteous War is very well documented and based on the hitherto unknown, archival recordsIt is very gripping and lively in the narration of adventure and prowess and is also, perhaps, the last great secret story of the Second World War.
