I Recommend This Book

Strongly

Secret Agent combines all the excitement of a Spy novel with the truth of a well researched documentary. There is plenty of information to satisfy those looking for the details of everything that Special Operations Executive was during World War Two but it never fails to move along at a pace that is often electrifying.

The personal details alongside the facts and the context of the times and places are what really bring this book alive and without losing historical integrity it gives you all the facts, from SOE's early struggles to be established, to be taken seriously as an organisation to some of the daring missions that their operatives undertook.

In all an excellent read, both for those seeking to gain an insight to the organisation as well as those who love the real life adventure of SOE.
