Damian Lewis Author SAS Ghost Patrol: The Ultra-Secret Unit That Posed As Nazi Stormtroopers Forces Radio BFBS #HatchAndGeere

In an exclusive interview with Richard Hatch and Verity Geere on the Forces Radio breakfast show, #HatchAndGeere, best-selling author Damien Lewis spoke about his new book, SAS: Ghost Patrol.

The book reveals the true story of an ultra-secret fighting unit that posed as Nazi Storm Troopers to seize the German-held Port City of Tobruk in Libya during the Second World War.

The book, published by Quercus, is described online as "... 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."

#HatchAndGeere started their interview by asking Damian how he got into writing? Watch the full interview below...
