Catch that Tiger

Catch that Tiger! has hit the bookshelves, and has been named the Daily Mail's Book of the Week!

The title, for those who don't know their WW2 history, comes from Hitler's Tiger tanks, which he believed would sway the war in his favour. Churchill, though, had other ideas, ordering Major Douglas Lidderdale to go and get him a Tiger, no matter what the cost. The story of his retrieval of this great war machine is fascinating - no less so for being told directly from his diary by son David Lidderdale and co-authors Noel Botham and Bruce Montague.

Although the book reads almost as fiction, it has been meticulously researched and the story - as fantastic as it appears to be - is completely true. If you like stories of British heroism (with a love story thrown in for free) then Catch That Tiger is without a doubt the book for you.
