One of the best books on UK s WW2 spies

by Mary Jane P on Oct 25, 2012

This is one of the best books on the UK's undercover operations during WW2. Written by Leo Marks, who was the chief codemaker for the SOE agents sent undercover to Europe. Fascinating and well-written. If you find a copy, get it.

This book is full of information about codes, spies, wartime, and so much more. That is the problem. It is a very long book One becomes overwhelmed with so many pages to read. While I am glad to have had the exposure to the book, I must say reading it to the end was exhausting.
