All about coups. This book is 4/5ths history lesson and 1/5th fictional account of a coup staging in London. The authors are former SAS soldiers. It's a fast read, and it's kept rather light. More of a journalistic style than a history book. Overall, I'd recommend it to anyone who likes military history or political intrigue.

It's also (currently) free on Amazon for the Kindle.
