    In the second part of October's Faber Podcast, Nicholas Rankin discusses his new book, 'Ian Fleming’s Commandos', a gripping account of 30 Assault Unit, which was set up by the future author of James Bond when he worked in naval intelligence during World War Two. This hush-hush band of never more than 300 men amounted to a private army that was never quite approved of by the top brass. In the interview Nicholas talks about how they came to be formed, what their brief was and discusses some of their greatest successes.
