"Ti preghiamo di riprovare"
It was a suicide mission. Sending two men deep into the heart of Nazi Germany with orders to assassinate Hitler and end the war for good. Would they be able to evade capture? Would they be able to get close enough to the most closely-guarded man in the world? And, when the time came, would they be able to pull the trigger.
Based on a real file prepared by the British Special Operations Executive, this novel imagines what might have happened if the British government had decided to put the plan into effect; had they dared to go one better than the earlier assassination of Reinhard Heydrich and kill the Fuhrer himself.
Paul Bernardi graduated with a bachelor’s degree in history before going on to earn a master’s degree in Anglo-Saxon history, both from the University of Leeds in West Yorkshire, England.
A lifelong love of history inspired him to write his World War II novel, To the Devil His Due, based on a plan drawn up by the British Special Operations Executive to assassinate Hitler.
Paul currently lives with his wife and two children in Cheshire, United Kingdom.--Questo testo si riferisce alla paperback edizione.

After seeing the Tom Cruise movie Valkarie previously the premise of eradicating an evil leader always appealed to me and that was what made me pick this book up. I'm so pleased that I did, a dramatised true story that was a real page turner.
I have a regular prompt in my diary to check back on Amazon to see if Bernadi has released another book, he sure knows how to spin a yarn!
It centres around a secret mission by the British Special Operations Executive (Responsible for spying/sabotage etc - Based on real life secret papers, only declassified 50 hears after the war finished) in occupied Europe by Peter Bogarde, an exiled Dutchman whose family have been killed by the Germans.
It balances his desire for revenge with his duty as a soldier when put up against the Nazi war machine. Lots of nice historical and military details and very exciting all the way through.
Happy to recommend a read!
This yarn ticked all three boxes and more.
I need fiction to be absorbing and historical fiction can often lose the authenticity on the journey but not in this case.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book and would whole heartedly recommend!!
Looking out for the next one!
Highly recommended...................when's the film out???
