This was a man who courted contradictions as much as he courted adventure. Inside the traitor was a man of loyalty; inside the villain was a hero; the problem for Chapman, his spymasters, and his lovers, was to know where one ended and the other began. In 1943, Colonel Tim Stephens of MI5 said of the story of Chapman: "In fiction it would be rejected as improbable". It is one of the most gripping untold stories of the Second World War.

Steal for England
Eddie Chapman's life reads like a Le Carre novel and Anthony Head does a wonderful job of bringing it to life.
Like Operation Mincemeat, this book follows one story from many in the OSS during the war. AWOL from the army, thief with explosives knowledge, gaoled in Jersey and taken on by the Germans as a spy, he turned into one of those great and unsung war heroes.
The story is gripping, yet factual, enthralling yet improbable. Even the worst Dime novel writer of the era couldn't have come up with such a story, yet Eddie lived it, danger was his drug of choice and, though he pushed it to the limits, he never overdosed.
