(From the publisher):
They deliberately betrayed the British Mediterranean Fleet, fought a tragic action with unwitting British destroyers, defied the might of the luftwaffe, the Italian High Command, the Prussian Gastapo, even a crack Wehrmacht paratroop regiment, and all to buy two years of time.
They were called the Chatham Rats.
They wore Italian uniforms, carried cyanide capsules, fought secretly with a fast Italian destroyer they had captured during the battle of Matapan, and they had one aim - to find and exterminate the men who designed the first guided missile in history, the radio controlled marine glider bomb.
