Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: How Churchill’s Secret Warriors Set Europe Ablaze and Gave Birth to Modern Black Ops, by Damien Lewis, about In 1939, when France fell to the Nazis, then-Prime Minister Winston Churchill announced that Britain would resist the German army’s attack.
To defeat the seemingly unstoppable German War Machine, he decided to stop fighting under the accepted gentlemanly rules of engagement and quickly and secretly developed a special military unit the likes of which the world had never seen before, and Britain’s first covert action unit – made up of survivalists, free-thinkers, misfits and downright of criminals.
With a wide range of skills, they were able to penetrate behind enemy lines with complete autonomy and, in defiance of the rules of war, became the first “deniable” agents of the Special Operations Directorate, the first to be given a real “license to kill” and to win important victories in the war against the Nazis. They achieved important victories in the war against the Nazis.
Henry Cavill plays the leader of the squad and Eiza González plays a sniper with extraordinary spy skills.
