Surrealpolitik: Gladio: We Can Neither Confirm Nor Deny

Author: Steve Chambers

Newcastle upon Tyne: Zymurgy Publishing (2013)

Quick Summary

A journalistic thriller based on the true story of Barry Prudom, who killed a policeman near Menwith Hill, a Yorkshire military installation that doubled as a US spy center. Prudom had special forces training in "stay behind" operations, suggesting a link to Operation Gladio, and Chambers pulls in a few other Gladio references, e.g., shady global bankers with links to the Vatican, along with the passing suggestion that Al Qaeda could be a similar operation.
