The Society of the Four Arts
Get a glimpse of how the special forces world started, and discover the little-known story of the brave unit that changed the nature of war.
Ben Macintyre is a British author, historian and reviewer. He is a columnist and associate editor for The Times (U.K.), covering subjects ranging from current a airs to historical controversies, and has worked as the newspaper’s correspondent in New York, Paris and Washington.
He is the author of 11 books, his latest being “Rogue Heroes,” the engrossing history of Britain’s secret special forces unit that sabotaged the Nazis and changed the nature of war. This incredible untold story of World War II’s greatest secret fighting force is told by an author who is considered to be the modern master of wartime intrigue.
Bringing his keen eye for psychological detail to a riveting wartime narrative, Macintyre uses his unprecedented access to SAS archives to shine a light inside a legendary unit long shrouded in secrecy. The result is not just a tremendous war story, but a fascinating group portrait of those whom history and country asked the most.
Macintyre’s other titles include “Agent Zigzag,” shortlisted for the Costa Biography Award and the Galaxy British Book Award for Biography of the Year 2008, and the number one best- sellers “A Spy Among Friends,” “Operation Mincemeat” and “Double Cross.”
