    Early in WW2, Churchill demanded that groups of men should be recruited to take the war to the Axis. This book, Churchill’s Secret Warriors is about some of the men who made up these parties. One of the raids was called Op POSTMASTER in which a young Anders Lassen left UK as a Private soldier and came back with a commission and his first Military Cross. He later went on to win the VC.

    We have 3 copies of this book to give away and to get you mitts on one you just have to answer the ridiculously easy questions and hope to get selected as a winner. The entry for can be found here: Churchill’s Secret Warriors.

    Q2 - The highheidyins in the Navy & Army considered this raid to be an act of piracy.

    Q3 - the raiding craft used in this raid and other famous raids was a folboat.

    Still a comp for the next great book Snow & Steel by Peter Caddick-Adams there for you to have a go at.
