Publisher Comments:

A remarkable story of a clandestine spy network comprised of sailors, farmers, painters, housewives, and children all unified in one purpose - the fall of the Third Reich.Ten Thousand Eyes is the story of how ordinary men and women from all walks of life risked torture and death in German-occupied Normandy to furnish the allied forces with detailed information of the German coastal defenses, knowledge essential for D-Day success. Working from material both published and unpublished, Richard Collier has created an authentic record of one of the most remarkable episodes of World War II, a human story of a group of ordinary people whose faith paved the way for Eisenhower's great sweep on D-Day. (5 1/2 X 8 1/4, 336 pages, b&w photos)
