In this fascinating new book, Sir Alexander Glen recounts the true story of the Allied campaign to strangle Germany into submission by cutting off its oil supplies during the Second World War. He spent time on special covert operations as Assistant Naval Attaché in Belgrade and many have claimed that Ian Fleming used Sir Alexander as his model for 007. This book includes revealing insights into those desperate times and gripping tales of fighting alongside Tito's partisans, parachuting into Eastern Serbia, bombing the Romanian oil fields and laying mines along the River Danube.
