Die Laughing by Robin Hawdon
After Russia’s aggressive sabre-rattling the nation urgently boosts its defence spending, along with other Western countries. A minor government unit, in charge of paper clips and loo paper, accidentally gets a boost of several billion pounds intended for the main Defence department. The egomaniac head of the section refuses to give the money back, and instead blackmails the Government into giving him charge of a new civil defence force. He then takes it upon himself and his incompetent committee to challenge the enemy’s nuclear threat with their own Dad’s Army resistance. They little realise what they are getting themselves into – let alone the rest of the world.
