Gunpowder and Glory

The previously untold story of Frank Brock – a remarkable forerunner of James Bond and ‘Q’ combined – and his extraordinary contribution to the British war effort between 1914 and 1918 as an inventor, secret agent and combatant. Gunpowder and Glory tells more than Frank's remarkable story of invention and derring-do. Woven into the narrative is the dazzling history of Brock's Fireworks, the world-famous firm started by Frank's five-times great-grandfather, and which he was being groomed to run.
