Forgotten Voices of the Secret War: An Inside Hisoty of Special Operations in the Second World War (Forgotten Voices)

Forgotten Voices of the Secret War: An Inside Hisoty of Special Operations in the Second World War (Forgotten Voices) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Drawing on vast archival resources and featuring a mass of previously unpublished personal testimonies, a unique collection of personal testimonies from the men and women of the Special Operations Executive (SOE)—a secret organization created early in World War II to encourage resistance and carry out sabotage behind enemy lines—is presented in this astounding volume. As their eyewitness testimonies prove, each member of the SOE faced extreme danger and personal risk in their fight to helped tilt the conflict in the Allies favor. The stories captured here include tales of parachute drops into enemy territory, capture and torture by the Gestapo, nerve-wracking sabotage missions, and guerrilla fighting alongside groups as varied as the French resistance, partisans in Yugoslavia, and tribes in the Burmese jungle. Both incredible and informative, this is a gripping first-hand account of the efforts and sacrifices of a unique clandestine force.
