Format: Paperback
the back room boys of the S.O.E. are finally recognised in this work recruited from the services industry and even film sets they set out to supply the agents and resistance fighters of occupuied europe and later the far east with the tools to do the job. some times purchasing existing kit sometimes adapting and quite often starting from scratch.they built an impresive and formidable menu of kit from underwear to submarines bombs that look like coal or animal dung and rats that explode when thrown on a fire.
dedicated devious and deadly these backroom boys and girls deserve the credit they recieve in this book.

I am still working my way through the book which I bought to help me identify a piece of equipment I bought at a car boot sale. The photos are excellent and I am learning quite a lot from the text. However I only gave it three stars because I found the style of the writers somewhat difficult. To me the work does not flow. So it is taking me longer than I thought to get through. Having said that there are few, if any, other works on the subject.
