An eye-opening biography of Airey Neave, a World War II hero, spymaster and politician. Marking the 40th anniversary of his death, it covers how he became the first British officer to escape from Colditz (where he coined his code name 'Saturday'), his training as a lawyer, helping to get Margaret Thatcher into power, and his remarkable death.
It is written by bestselling and critically acclaimed historian Patrick Bishop, who has a string of Sunday Times bestsellers to his name. The Man Who Was Saturday is published with the support of the Neave family who have given Patrick access to previously unseen papers and contracts.
