Product description

Fame, notoriety, thrills and money are all part of the game. Using disguises and showing bravado, some used devious or meticulous means to steal what wasn’t rightfully theirs, while others simply walked in to a shop or bank with a loaded weapon and demanded what cash was available. From the most famous robberies including the Great Train Robbery of 1963 with a haul of £2.6 million, the Baker Street robbery with an estimated £3 million in 1971, to the Brink’s-Mat robbery at Heathrow Airport in 1983, and the great financial frauds of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, Robbery gives a fascinating insight into the masterminds behind some of the greatest robberies ever committed.
