withoutlawfulWithout Lawful Authority by Manning Coles

A long extended farce, featuring the sort-of dynamic duo Warnford and Marden. Warnford has been cashiered from the British Army for important documents going missing on his watch, and Marden robs safes for a living (relax, only from those who can afford it). Marden fails to rob Warnford's safe and a beautiful friendship is instantly born, which segues immediately into the both of them going up against Hitler's finest in the UK in the year before the war. Disgraced officer and cat burglar they may be, they aren't unpatriotic.
