Giles Milton, Churchill’s Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: The Mavericks Who Plotted Hitler’s Defeat

Tuesday, November 12, 2019 - 6:00 PM | Members' Room | 6:00 PM refreshments, 6:30 PM lecture | for members and guests | free of charge | registration required

In the spring of 1939, a top-secret organization was founded in London: its purpose was to plot the destruction of Hitler's war machine through spectacular acts of sabotage. Giles Milton's Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare is a gripping and vivid narrative of adventure and derring-do that is also, perhaps, the last great untold story of the Second World War.

Giles Milton is an internationally bestselling author of narrative nonfiction. His books include Nathaniel's Nutmeg―serialized by the BBC―and eleven other critically acclaimed works of history. He is a trustee of The London Library.

This event is co-sponsored with The International Friends of the London Library.
