Just couldn't put it down this is one mans war (A Frenchman's) that I would not have liked to have experienced! From; the battlefields of France 1940 where he escaped from a German field hospital to predominantly operating behind enemy lines in Africa, where he was involved in clandestine operations of espionage and sabotage. He was to be WIA (wounded in Action) 4 different times! (Once whilst driving a jeep with the SAS!) To being captured a total of 4 different times (Twice by the Vichy regime) - And on one occasion having been sent to a Concentration camp. All from which he escaped! His lists of decorations are long! The book's narrative is just unbelievable..... What a man, what a story, what a strength, only a quarter of his escapades would be enough to make him a hero!

It would be great if I could find a collaborating reference to his interaction with the counterfeiters at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp and the information that they gave him, page 205!

I've only dipped into this book so far, and am looking forward to settling down to read it properly. It seems beautifully written and very evocative. What an amazing man!

This book is a must to read. The courage and fortitude of this man through WWII is truly amazing.
I cannot recommend it enough.
