A landmark modern history of United Kingdom's War on Drugs. Drug War is the gripping story of the men who drugged Britain, and of the elite agents who tried to stop them. It tells how the secretive Investigation Division of HM Customs fought a 50-year battle to stem the tide of cannabis, cocaine and heroin arriving by land, air and sea, and of the smuggling gangs, both organised and chaotic, who turned an amateur pastime into a multi-billion-pound trade. The product of more than 100 unique interviews, many with insiders who have never spoken publicly, is a ground-breaking account of one of the most fascinating subjects of our times.
