The GESTAPO’s Most Improbable Hostage

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The full story of SOE may never be told. Some activities were never recorded, most surviving records were classified for many years, tons of paper were destroyed at the end of WWII and German records were equally fragmented, not least because archives were destroyed by bombing. The story is the memoir of the subject, carefully edited by his daughter, to make a unique and very moving account of the survival of ‘special’ prisoners. – Most Highly Recommended
