Oh, I agree!
after working my way through half the book, and counting more than forty major errors, I wrote to the publishers - History Press - offering to proof read the first half at $15 per 1,000 words and the remainder free. They did not reply.
Don't buy this edition; really don't. It will just annoy you.
This is a book about SOE - Special Operations Executive - but we have several variations even on the name of the organization : S@E etc. The publishers should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves. Luckily there are several American editions that do Mr Marks justice.
In thirty years of buying books, I have never seen a worse edition of a good book than this - stay away if you value your sanity.
What's odd is, I am certain that I read this book in a hard back edition in the 1980s - but History Press doesn't list that edition. Another reason to run a mile from them!
