On the night of February 27, 1942 a detachment of British paratroopers began to land in occupied France. Their mission: to capture a German radar site and seize the machine's vital parts. If they succeeded, the secrets of Germany's radar apparatus would be theirs-with major implications for an Allied victory. Failure was inconceivable: above all for the young British soldier who parachuted in wearing a German uniform, knowing he would have to die rather than be captured alive.

George Millar won the DSO and MC during the Second World War. He fought in North Africa, was captured by the Germans but managed to escape back to England in time to join SOE. He was parachuted into France in June 1944 to coordinate resistance behind enemy lines. He wrote two volumes of wartime memoirs, Maquis and Horned Pigeon, then several sea stories (he is an accomplished yachtsman) before researching and writing The Bruneval Raid.
