Secret War Heroes : The Men of Special Operations Executive, Paperback

Secret War Heroes : The Men of Special Operations Executive Paperback


Founded by Churchill, Special Operations Executive (SOE) was the forerunner of the SAS, and during WWII they sent many hundreds of specially-trained agents deep undercover in Nazi-occupied Europe.

Here Marcus Binney explores the extraordinary stories and daring exploits of some of the male agents who made up these little-known war heroes, and who helped change the course of the twentieth century with their bravery and sacrifice.

The author has undertaken ground-breaking research in previously classified Foreign Office files in order to write this book.
