Riassunto: Written by the man many have suggested Ian Fleming used as the model for James Bond, Sir Alexander Glen details the daring exploits of himself and his colleagues during a dangerous period of the Second World War. Sir Alexander Glen vividly recounts: Frank discussions with real life spies such as Michael Mason, friend of Ian Fleming; British and German covert operations in the Balkans; Fighting alongside Tito's Partisans. The arrival of Russia's Red Army before the final push to Berlin. The extensive campaign by British and American air forces to bomb the Romanian Ploesti oil fields and mine the River Danube. Target Danube is a unique eye-witness account of the heroic and strategically important campaign by the Allies to strangle Germany into submission during the Second World War by cutting off its oil supplies.
About the Author: Sir Alexander Glen C.B.E. K.B.E. was educated at Balliol College, Oxford, where he took part in three university Arctic expeditions for which he was awarded the Polar Medal in 1940. During the Second World War he served as Assistant Naval Attache in Belgrade, then on special operations with Coastal Command. His varied post-war career included many directorships and the chairmanship of the British Tourist Authority and the Export Council for Europe. Sir Alexander is the author of Young Men in the Arctic (Faber), Under the Pole Star (Methuen) and Footholds Against a Whirlwind (Hutchinson). He now lives in Broadway, Worcestershire with his wife.
