Customer Review

on 9 September 2004
The book describes George Millar's experiences as an SOE operative in the Doubs region of Northern France in the last months of occupation, from his training to being parachuted into France, and the end of occupation. The book is written in a style unlike so many other war memoirs, which often see things very much in black and white, good vs evil. George Millar was in a subtle way, I think, far ahead of his time. His Maquis is everything from hilariously funny to terribly sad, and always told from a refreshingly enlightened point of view.
I saw him interviewed on television in about 2001. He said something like "When I think about the war I can't help thinking how silly it all was." Mr Millar, for your wonderful book and sincere wisdom, I salute you.
