To me, as one interested in WWII counter-espionage, nothing beats first-person recollection. Buckmaster writes vividly about selecting, training, organizing and dispatching courageous agents into occupied France. Then there was his own agony: almost unbearable anxiety awaiting the results of daring acts of subterfuge, as well as enduring periods of uncertainty when agents' transmissions ceased, sometimes permanently. There were, of course spectacular successes and many brave men and women survived, to remember and mourn those who did not. In the end, we won. The Colonel played a key role in that victory.
