The paperback of Liberation, the true story of WW2 heroine Nancy Wake, co-written by client Imogen Robertson, was released this week.
Nancy Wake was a soldier who led a battalion of 7,000 French Resistance fighters who called her Field Marshall. Who had a 5-million Franc bounty on her head. Who killed a Nazi with her bare hands. Who defeated 22,000 Germans with the loss of only 100 men. Who sold her medals because, "I'll probably go to hell and they'd melt anyway."

Finally, we are welcoming a new author to DHH this week.
Thomas D. Lee, who joins Harry Illingworth's list, writes novels about folklore and climate breakdown, often at the same time. He believes all sorts of things about how art and literature can be used as tools to fight for a better future, but mostly he just wants to make his readers laugh.
He holds a BA in History and an MA in Creative Writing from the University of Manchester, where he is currently studying for a PhD.
Thomas is currently working on his debut novel, The Matter of Britain.
