In constant danger, and often with little equipment, saboteur-commander George Millar led his group of the Maquis on a series of cloak-and-dagger adventures which challenge the imagination. Trains were mysteriously wrecked, roundhouses destroyed, equipment sabotaged. Captain Millar's story is one of resource, endurance and hairbreadth escapes, of astonishing success and only occasional tragedy.
Millar's fellow Resistance fighters include swashbuckling Boulaya; Pancheau, the soft-eyed, brilliant leader; the daredevil Le Frise; the American Paul, whom all the women adored; and many nameless men from all walks of life who lived and trained in the wooded hillsides of France.
The tale of George Millar's wartime adventures which led him to join the Maquis, including escape from the Germans and a hair-raising trip across Europe, is told in HORNED PIGEON, also in Cassell Military Paperbacks.
