By 2007 Viktor Bout had become the world's foremost arms dealer. Known as the 'Merchant of Death' he was both 'Public Enemy No. 1' to the global intelligence agencies and a ruthless criminal worth around six billion dollars. For years Bout had eluded capture, meanwhile building up a labyrinthine network of airlines selling weapons to order to dictators, rebels, despots and terror groups worldwide. He was hunted by the CIA, NSA, MI6, as well as being sought by the United Nations for being their top global sanctions buster. Holed up in Moscow - from where he ran a suite of offices selling anything from AK47s to state-of-the-art helicopter gunships and anti-aircraft missiles - he was shielded by a Russian state that was a partner in his dark dealings. In short, Bout appeared utterly invulnerable and beyond any hope of capture. Step forward former SAS man Mike Snow.

Book:Smoky the brave, the world's smallest dog, the world's biggest heart:2019
Author: Lewis, Damien
Year: 2019
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Quercus
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: London: Quercus, 2018 In February 1944, as Japanese military advances threatened to engulf Australasia, a tiny, four-pound Yorkshire terrier was discovered hiding in a Japanese shell scrape amidst the thick jungles of Papua New Guinea. The GIs who discovered her presumed she had been some kind of Japanese army mascot, but it soon turned out that she understood neither commands rendered in Japanese nor English. A mystery, she was adopted by Corporal William 'Bill' Wynne, an air-crewman with the US 5th Air Force's 26th Photo Reconnaissance Squadron. 'Smoky the Brave' is the extraordinary, touching and true story of a heroic dog and her adoptive masters in the jungles of the Pacific War.

Book:Churchill's secret warriors, the explosive true story of the special forces desperadoes of WWII:2015
Author: Lewis, Damien
Year: 2015
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Quercus
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2014 In the bleak moments after defeat on mainland Europe in winter 1939, Winston Churchill knew that Britain had to strike back hard. So Britain's wartime leader called for the lightning development of a completely new kind of warfare, recruiting a band of eccentric free-thinking warriors to become the first 'deniable' secret operatives to strike behind enemy lines, offering these volunteers nothing but the potential for glory and all-but-certain death. 'Churchill's Secret Warriors' tells the story of the daring victories for this small force of freelance pirates, undertaking devastatingly effective missions against the Nazis, often dressed in enemy uniforms and with enemy kit, breaking all previously held rules of warfare.

Large print:Hunting Hitler's nukes, the secret raceto stop the Nazi bomb:2017
Author: Lewis, Damien
Year: 2017
Language: English
Type: Large print
Publisher: Clipper Large Print Books
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: Quercus, 2016 In the Spring of 1940, as Britain reeled from defeats on all fronts and America seemed frozen in isolation, one fear united the British and American leaders like no other: the Nazis had stolen a march on the Allies towards building the atomic bomb. So began the hunt for Hitler's nuclear weapons - nothing else came close in terms of priorities. This book intercuts the hunt for the scientists, the raw materials and the plant, with the cloak and dagger intelligence game being played in the shadows. This relied in part on ENIGMA intercepts to guide the SOE's hand. Lewis delves into some of the most extraordinarily inventive and Machiavellian innovations at the SOE, and their related research and training schools, whereby the enemy were tricked, deceived, framed, blackmailed and double and triple-crossed, all in the name of stopping the Reich from getting the bomb.

Book:SAS ghost patrol, the ultra-secret unit that posed as Nazi stormtroopers:2018
Author: Lewis, Damien
Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Quercus
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2017 This 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.
