Hans Fallada´s Alone in Berlin begins in Berlin, 1940, and the city is filled with fear. At the house on 55 Jablonski Strasse, its various occupants try to live under Nazi rule in their different ways: the bullying Hitler loyalists the Persickes, the retired judge Fromm and the unassuming couple Otto and Anna Quangel. Then the Quangels receive the news that their beloved son has been killed fighting in France. Shocked out of their quiet existence, they begin a silent campaign of defiance, and a deadly game of cat and mouse develops between the Quangels and the ambitious Gestapo inspector Escherich.

´A magnificent story, brilliantly told. Read it!´ Anthony Horowitz Six gentlemen, one goal - the destruction of Hitler´s war machine In the spring of 1939, a top secret organisation was founded in London: its purpose was to plot the destruction of Hitler´s war machine through spectacular acts of sabotage. The guerrilla campaign that followed was to prove every bit as extraordinary as the six gentlemen who directed it. Winston Churchill selected them because they were wildly creative and thoroughly ungentlemanly. One of them, Cecil Clarke, was a maverick engineer who had spent the 1930s inventing futuristic caravans. Now, his talents were put to more devious use: he built the dirty bomb used to assassinate Hitler´s favourite, Reinhard Heydrich. Another member of the team, William Fairbairn, was a portly pensioner with an unusual passion: he was the world´s leading expert in silent killing. He was hired to train the guerrillas being parachuted behind enemy lines. Led by dapper Scotsman Colin Gubbins, these men - along with three others - formed a secret inner circle that planned the most audacious sabotage attacks of the Second World War. Winston Churchill called it his Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. The six ´ministers´, aided by a group of formidable ladies, were so effective that they single-handedly changed the course of the war. Told with Giles Milton´s trademark verve and eye for detail, Churchill´s Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare is thoroughly researched and based on hitherto unknown archival material. It is a gripping and vivid narrative of adventure and derring-do and is also, perhaps, the last great untold story of the Second World War. Previously published in hardback as The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare .

´Hilarious and heart-breaking at the same time, Nimko has blown apart all taboos, blown apart the echo chamber and included all women in the feminist conversation. Essential reading for everyone´ - Scarlett Curtis, author of Feminists Don´t Wear Pink 14 countries, 42 women, each with a story no one has heard before. What do you do when you´re living on the streets and on your period? What does it feel like to have a poo after you´ve given birth? How do we learn to love our bodies again after they´ve been abused? And, how do you know if you´ve ever really orgasmed? We all have questions about our bodies but often women´s voices are silenced for being impolite or improper What We´re Told Not To Talk About (But We´re Going To Anyway) is an important, taboo-breaking book that gives voice to the experiences of women from all walks of life, whose stories might not ordinarily be heard. Alongside Nimko´s story of living with FGM, rebuilding her relationship with her own body and being a woman her own way, these are the true stories of real women who are sharing the experiences they´ve always been told should be secret and shameful. The book is a call to arms for all women to reclaim the narrative around their bodies and to refuse to bow to the taboos which keep us silent. There is no such thing as oversharing. ´A beautiful book with such a wide range of uplifting but often heart-breaking stories. Made us cry and think in equal measure´ - Pandora Sykes, co-host of The High Low ´Nimko´s book is going to shift the conversation around women´s bodies. Our bodies, and everything they do, make us who we are´ - Amika George, founder of Free Periods Campaign. ´Nimko says it how it is. There is no subject too taboo for her to tackle. We should all be talking about our vaginas and she is leading the way´ - Bryony Gordon, author of Mad Girl ´Nimko Ali is my hero! She´s an anti-FGM activist and is responsible for changing laws across the globe! She is also hilarious and wonderful´ - Zoe Sugg ´Nimko Ali is heroine for our time, she destroys the notion of things being too rude to discuss´ - Caitlin Moran, author of How to Be a Woman
