Description

This lively biography by Patrick Bishop examines the life, heroic war and death of one of Britain’s most remarkable 20th century figures.

Taken prisoner during WW2, Airey Neave was the first British officer to escape from Colditz, and using the code name ‘Saturday’ became a key figure in the IS9 escape and evasion organization which spirited hundreds of Allied airmen and soldiers out of Occupied Europe. An ardent Cold War warrior, he was mixed up in several of the great spy scandals of the period and was assassinated in the House of Commons car park in 1979.
