• "Roderick Bailey's assembly of tales deserves a warm welcome, both for readability - there is not a dull page - and for surprise: a great deal of it is unknown to [the] general public"

    MRD Foot, official historian of SOE, Literary Review
  • "Roderick Bailey has skilfully braided their stories into a coherent narrative, and the quality of their egregious courage catches at the heart"

  • "a fascinating and at times gruesome and moving read, and is an ideal introduction to the whole subject of the SOE...thoroughly recommended"
