An updated, more accurate and fuller version of the events written up in 'The Man Who Never Was' by Ewan Monagu.
Overlong for its content and a touch dry. Much research clearly done but quotes in some places seem to be inserted merely because they had been noted rather than their aptness.
Would have benefitted from a closer edit. Nevertheless the events and ramifications are interesting enough to make you want to struggle through it. Won't win any prizes.
