The impossibly moving story of how Judy, World War Two’s only animal POW, brought hope in the midst of hell.
Judy, a beautiful liver and white English pointer, and the only animal POW of WWII, truly was a dog in a million, cherished and adored by the British, Australian, American and other Allied servicemen who fought to survive alongside her.
Viewed largely as human by those who shared her extraordinary life, Judy’s uncanny ability to sense danger, matched with her quick-thinking and impossible daring saved countless lives. She was a close companion to men who became like a family to her, sharing in both the tragedies and joys they faced. It was in recognition of the extraordinary friendship and protection she offered amidst the unforgiving and savage environment of a Japanese prison camp in Indonesia that she gained her formal status as a POW.
Judy’s unique combination of courage, kindness and fun repaid that honour a thousand times over and her incredible story is one of the most heartwarming and inspiring tales you will ever read.SAS Ghost Patrol
Meet the unit that posed as Nazi stormtroopers in the most daring mission ever undertaken
SAS Ghost Patrol is the explosive true story of the day in 1942 when the SAS donned Nazi uniforms to perpetrate the most audacious and daring mission of the war. Beyond top secret, deniable in the extreme (and of course enjoying Churchill’s enthusiastic blessing), this is one of the most remarkable stories of wartime lawlessness, eccentricity and raw courage in the face of impossible odds – a thoroughly British undertaking.
What unfolded – the longest mission ever undertaken by Allied special forces – was an epic of daring, courage, tragedy and survival that remains unrivalled to this day, and which rightly became a foundation stone of Special Forces legend. Written with Lewis’s signature authenticity and dramatic verve, SAS Ghost Patrol is peopled by a cast of the utterly maverick and the extraordinary. In its quirky eccentricities and outrageous rule-breaking, this is a story that only the British could have authored, and with such panache and aplomb. It may read like the stuff of impossible myth or folklore, but every single word is true.SAS Nazi Hunters
In late summer 1944 eighty SAS soldiers parachuted into the French mountains, targeting one of the last great defences of the Reich.
Dropped hundreds of kilometres behind enemy lines, they were tasked with wreaking havoc and bloody mayhem, ensuring that Hitler's do-or-die stand would fail.
Hunted by thousands of crack German troops, at mission's end thirty-one SAS were listed as "missing - fate unknown". They faced a horrific fate at the hands of their Nazi captors. With Winston Churchill's backing, mission leader Colonel Brian Franks refused to let matters rest. Faced with the post-war disbandment of the SAS,
Franks formed a top-secret Man Hunting unit to track down the Nazi killers through 1948 and beyond.
Known as 'The Secret Hunters, this force was peopled by a cast more extraordinary than any fiction: Captain Henry Druce, who waged war from his jeep in a silk top hat and corduroys; Russian Prince Yurka Galitzine, the fabulously well-connected grandmaster of black operations.
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.
'History tells us that the SAS regiment was disbanded in
1945... A new book by acclaimed historian Damien Lewis has revealed one lone, top secret SAS unit fought on' THE SUNSAS Italian Job
In the hard-fought winter of 1944 the Allies advanced northwards through Italy, but stalled on the fearsome mountainous defences of the Gothic Line. Two men were parachuted in, in an effort to break the deadlock. Their mission: to penetrate deep into enemy territory and lay waste to the Germans’ impregnable headquarters.
At the eleventh hour mission commanders radioed for David ‘The Mad Piper’ Kilpatrick to be flown in, resplendent in his tartan kilt. They wanted this fearless war hero to lead the assault, piping Highland Laddie as he went – so leaving an indelible British signature to deter Nazi reprisals.
As the column of raiders formed up, there was shocking news. High command radioed through an order to stand down, having assessed the chances of success at little more than zero. But in defiance of orders, and come hell or high-water, they were going in.SAS Band of Brothers
We share the triumphs and tragedies of a group of elite soldier trailblazers as they commit daring raids behind enemy lines in 1944, manage an against the odds escape to victory, and then seek post-war retribution for the terrible murder of their captured comrades.
SAS BAND OF BROTHERS is replete with action, peppered with great characters, and features two of the most daring escapes of WWII. It ends with the hunted becoming the hunters – a group of men intent on seeking out the Nazis responsible for their brethren’s deaths, on an ultra-deniable SAS mission to avenge a war crime.
This is the new bestseller from Damien Lewis. It bears all his hallmarks – an epic, page-turning special forces narrative based on hitherto unavailable personal testimony and private family archives.SAS Brothers in Arms
Damien Lewis’s new bestseller tells the action-packed, riveting story of the band of mavericks and visionaries who made the SAS. 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.
This is a narrative of wall-to-wall do-or-die action and daring, chronicling the exploits of some of the most highly-decorated soldiers of the twentieth-century.
