About this deal

Using hitherto untold stories and new archival sources, Damien Lewis follows one close-knit band of warriors from the SAS foundation through to the Italian landings – chronicling the extraordinary part they played as the tide of the Second World War truly turned in the Allies’ favour. In fact, most of the men who volunteered for the SAS during the time this book covers, 1941-1943, were unlikely to thrive under normal military life. Still studied by the SAS today, The Secret Hunters are a founding part of the Regiment's myth, constituting one of the great untold stories of the Second World War.

His recent book The Flame of Resistance examines the efforts of WWII heroine Josephine Baker, the highest-paid female entertainer in Europe before becoming an allied spy. Lewis is a Fellow of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. This is especially true for Blair “Paddy” Mayne - a complex and multi-layered individual who is usually misrepresented in books and especially so in the current BBC drama - if only they had made this book into a TV series!That fiction was followed up by Cobra Gold, an equally compelling tale of global drama and intrigue and shadowy betrayal. There are also interesting accounts of the stool pigeons and traitors the Axis forces used to counter the SAS.
