This is an excellent book that looks at the secret service operations and plans to try and hinder the Nazi regime around Europe and Northern Africa. It’s a fascinating collection of works that really draws the reader into various worlds of danger, extremism and bravery. The members of the secret services had to show great bravery and skill as the possible end result would have been certain death. To think many of these agents were having to work secret so if anything went wrong, then everything would have been denied.The History Fella
I really enjoyed this book, an ideal read for those that write about spy dramas and espionage as this book shows exactly how it would have been. A book that they say would be hard to put down. Well written and captivated the reader. Pen & Sword have really got me into this spy world and espionage, with great books about some great intelligence agencies.

A new and interesting piece of the historical puzzle which was World War Two and a must-read for those interested in how politics at all levels influence common sense and outcomes. It was interesting to see the common threads across different perspectives and consider the role espionage played in defeating Nazism.NetGalley, Louise Gray
