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.
