In the winter of 1942 three men with forged papers were dropped by the R.A.F. into enemy-occupied France. These men were officers of Special Operations Executive, Britain's most secret wartime sabotage and subversion organisation. This book reconstructs the events with lively detail and the text contains much interesting and hitherto unavailable material, notable the texts of the signals exchanged with Algiers at the time of the Vercors battle. From the sleeve blurb.
