Bugsy's new book is out.

Oh dear.

SAS veterans outraged by 'true story' book branded 'stolen valour'

When Hodder & Stoughton released Pilgrim Spy in September it was billed as “one of the great untold stories of the Cold War”, involving “roof top chases, a beautiful East German female suspected of being a Stasi spy and a climactic gun battle at Colditz Castle”......
..........The author of Pilgrim Spy was also accused of having lifted large, unacknowledged chunks of Wikipedia to supply background context for his “true story”.

Why do these people think that they can get away with something that is easily checked and trashed in an instant?
Maybe Bugsy would care to explain.

Edited to add. Who wants to review it for ARRSE?

Comes from the same stable as this book.

The Man Who Broke into Auschwitz - Wikipedia
The head historian at Auschwitz, Piotr Setkiewicz, who conducted his own research, which was confirmed by other historians, Auschwitz former prisoners, and Jewish organisations, came to the conclusion that at least some parts of the story seem highly unlikely and probably never happened.
On the other hand, this book has an ISBN number - unlike Pantaloons of Flame's published work.

Bugsy actually writes under a different name
