An excellent account of SOE and its people.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Between Silk and Cyanide (Paperback)
This book puts a very human face to the people who carried the resistance war to the occupied territories during WWII. It left me with an appreciation for what these people did, the sacrifices made, and the lives lost. The book is written to give an insight into the personalities of the people involved, the politics of interservice rivalries, and the techniques of code-making and codebreaking. The author displays his flamboyant personality in a very honest way, and I suspect that the contents of the book are very honestly portrayed as well. Excellent and highly recommended.
