One response to “Special Operations – SOE, OSS

  1. Try They Arrived by Moonlight by captain Jacques Doneux. (One bookseller wrote “Doneux reveals his six perilous months operating a secret radio-set under the very noses of the Gestapo. He parachuted into enemy-occupied Belgium on a moonlit night in 1943 and lived with danger 24 hours a day. Here he records his adventures, including a 23-hour trek across the Pyrenees.”)
