Die Laughing by Robin Hawdon
The nation urgently boosts its defence spending, along with other Western countries. A minor government unit 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 to challenge the enemy’s nuclear threat with his own Dad’s Army resistance, little realising what he is getting himself and his incompetent team into – let alone the rest of the world.
If it wasn’t so funny it would be terrifying!
