    Om The War That Never Was

    "Remarkable story ... Hart-Davis tells splendidly the astonishing tale he has uncovered" Max Hastings for The Sunday Times "Duff Hart-Davis has taken over the writing of this book from Jim Johnson's second-in-command, Tony Boyle, who was working from Johnson's archive; both men died before the work was completed. He has done his extraordinary subject justice. Why did any of them get involved with the project? Well, the pay was good, but that is exactly the sort of thing men say to cover their enjoyment and excitement. The fact of the matter is that it was a terrific adventure" Philip Hensher for The Spectator "Plenty of books claim to be about forgotten aspects of the past. Yet Duff Hart-Davis has managed to go one better in this tale of British mercenaries and Egyptian skulduggery by unearthing a war that has hitherto remained more or less secret" James Owen for Mail on Sunday 20110227 "An extraordinary story that needed to be told... Duff Hart-Davis tells their fascinating story, which will be new to many readers, remarkably well" Charles Guthrie for the Literary Review "This dramatic piece of history is thoroughly researched, drawn from first- hand accounts of the mercenaries' experience. Written at the pace of a James Bond thriller, Hart-Davis leavens his gung-ho tale with details that are at times touching and humorous" The Herald
