First published in 1988, this is the story of how Claude Dansey, deputy head of MI6, infiltrated Henri Déricourt, double agent extraordinaire, into the rival British wartime secret service, SOE. The ensuing trail of destruction and betrayal led to the loss of over four hundred British and French agents. Recruited as the man SOE so desperately needed, Déricourt penetrated the heart of PROSPER, SOE's biggest network in France. At the same time he renewed contact with Karl Boemelburg, head of German counter-espionage in Paris. Every movement, code and dispatch from the British agents was made known to Boemelburg; Déricourt gave him everything. His treachery finally led to the disastrous fall of the PROSPER network, and to the arrest of nearly one thousand men and women, hundreds of whom died in concentration camps. Was it patriotism that drove Dansey, or was the Déricourt plan merely part of the secret war between MI6 and SOE, a war in which Dansey held all the weapons? All the King's Men is the dramatic account on one of the most ruthless secret operations of the Second World War.

'The British soldier,' wrote a Prussian officer who served with Wellington, 'is vigorous, well fed, by nature highly brave and intrepid, trained to the most vigorous discipline, and admirably well armed . . . These circumstances explain how this army . . . has never yet been defeated in the field.' From the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 to the Downfall of Napoleon in 1815, Britain won a series of major wars against France that enabled her to lay the foundations of a global empire. By Waterloo, she was the paramount maritime and industrial power in the world, and would remain so for much of the nineteenth century. This is the story of that extraordinary century and a half of martial success and the people who made it possible: the soldier-kings William III and the first two Georges; the generals Marlborough, Wolfe, Moore and Wellington; and the ordinary British redcoats who - despite harsh service conditions that included low pay, poor housing, inadequate food and brutal discipline - rarely let their commanders down in battles as far afield as Blenheim, Plassey, Quebec and Waterloo. In a fast moving narrative that ranges from the barracks and cabinet rooms of England to the rolling plains of Flanders (the 'Cockpit of Europe'), the trackless wilderness of North America and the mountains of the Iberian Peninsula, Saul David paints a compelling and vivid portrait of the British soldier - Wellington's 'best all Instruments' - in peacetime and at war.
