“A rousing account and celebration of World War II’s most insidious and devious heroes.”
—The Wall Street Journal

Six gentlemen, one goal: the destruction of Hitler’s war machine. Operating under a total veil of secrecy to carry out guerrilla attacks against top Nazi officials and chosen by Churchill himself, the Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare was a well-hidden detail of the Second World War for decades. In his recent book, “Churchill’s Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: The Mavericks Who Plotted Hitler’s Defeat,” author Giles Milton tells a gripping and vivid narrative that finally brings to light the incredible men and women in this inner circle who helped defeat the Nazi regime.
