Caskie tells his story calmly and unemotionally. A typical Highlander, you imagine him sitting by his fireside - dram in hand - as this extraordinary tale unfolds.
Occasionally you would be forgiven for thinking you were reading the plot for 'Allo, 'Allo! Caskie's continual game of hide and seek with the Vichy police, the lengths that locals go to to make sure he has enough food and coal, and the dealings with Arab clothes traders all raise a smile.
But this isn't a comedy. Men die, traitors are uncovered and Caskie himself faces death as a British agent.
Caskie is of course devout. He has an uncanny sixth sense. He is also a native Gaelic speaker and keeps a detailed log of information in Gaelic. "Who but the Lord and the minister of the Scots Church would have the Gaelic in France during WWII" he says. This vital information is passed on to London via well known agents.
Don't be put off by the name or the dreadful tartan hat on the cover!! This book should be part of your collection.
