Review:

[A] wonderful book ... A fascinating and lively account ... Milton writes with a pace and panache suitable to the subject The Times What sets Milton's work apart from other recounting is his behind-the-scenes access to the stories of the small group of men who put their minds to creating new ways to wage war The Spectator Milton is a meticulous researcher and masterful storyteller ... a fascinating account of England's top-secret operatives who designed and deployed the chilling but effective weapons of clandestine warfare USA Today Milton is a first-rate storyteller ... a rousing account - and celebration - of most insidious heroes Wall Street Journal [Giles Milton] writes with relish about the eccentrics who dreamed up the likes of anti-tank 'sticky bombs' while the adventures he describes could not be faster-moving or more exciting Literary Review This account of dirty bombs and derring-do rattles along with the pace of a spy novel Daily Express A magnificent story, brilliantly told. Read it! Anthony Horowitz Terrific ... a great read Ian Hislop
