Rogue Male: Death and Seduction in World War II with Mister Major Geoff Book

This is the untold story of one of the most lethal and successful soldiers of the Second World War - a highly decorated hero as well as a self-confessed rogue. What is doubly revealing what is perhaps unique in the history of writing about that war is the way that Geoffrey Gordon-Creed proudly records in his own words the same ruthless passion for chasing women as he showed for seeking out and destroying the enemy. In the tank war in the desert of North Africa Major Geoff as he came to be known quickly showed himself a soldier of superb athleticism unwavering will to win and almost superhuman instincts when it came to survival and outwitting the enemy. Almost incredibly he won the Military Cross on his very first day in action. He fought alongside the SAS in its early days and was with them while they were forging the ruthless fighting techniques that have made them feared throughout the world. He played a decisive role in the Greek resistance to German occupation and was praised by Churchill when he held up two German divisions more or less single-handedly. While in Greece he also became involved in some of the dirtiest hand to hand fighting of the war.To the men with whom he fought shoulder to shoulder he was 'Saint Geoff' to his enemies he was the devil incarnate a man who would stop at absolutely nothing and to his critics among the partisans he a was a womanizer more interested in enjoying himself than killing the enemy. At the end of the war he took charge of capturing the leading Nazis and his own account of the war ends with his searching for cyanide pills secreted away by his prisoners a finger rammed up the arse of Admiral Doenitz final leader of the Third Reich. This is an honest account of winning the war not by fair play but by being more ruthless than your enemy. But maybe what is even more extraordinary than his soldiering - its predatory ruthlessness and amorality - is the frank account of sexual adventuring that went with it. This is how the dogs of war behave when they are let off the leash.Read More
