About this title

Synopsis:

Many famous escapes from Nazi-occupied Europe were made possible by a hitherto secret British service MI 9. This small, dedicated and endlessly inventive team constantly exchanged coded letters with prisoner-of-war camps. It was It sent in money, maps, clothes, compasses, hacksaws; the prisoners sent out invaluable news of what was going on in the enemy's homeland. It was also responsible for aiding resistance fighters in enemy-occupied territory. Understaffed and under-resourced, MI 9 nonetheless made a terrific contribution to the Allies war effort, using sheer inventiveness to help free British servicemen trapped overseas and to gather intelligence on the Nazis. First published in 1979, this book tells the full inside story of MI9.
