Description
The shadowy undercover work of the American OSS (Office of Strategic Services) and the British SOE (Special Operations Executive) in World War II proved to be an invaluable part of the Allied war effort. The author of Escape and Evasion and editor of The Oxford Companion to World War II, Ian Dear chronicles 13 specific operations of the OSS and SOE across Europe, Burma, and the Far East. In gripping detail he describes their contributions in codebreaking, blockade running, kidnapping, forging, raiding, assassinating, and occasionally demolishing the odd bridge, typically under nerve-wracking conditions.
