Prepared for any situation from averting interrogation through suicide to derailing a train with nothing but an overcoat—and supplied with such useful items as expertly forged documents, exploding rats, and invisible ink—the men and women of the O.S.S. and the S.O.E. were sent behind enemy lines to cause mayhem, often alone, with an average life expectancy of six weeks. These are their stories in their own words.

The extraordinary story of special agents of World War II -- for the first time in their own words.
This fascinating oral history follows the adventures of the courageous men and women who volunteered for service with Britain?s Special Ops and the USA?s OSS. They parachuted behind enemy lines, often alone. Arrest resulted in torture and imprisonment; sometimes in execution. In occupied France they were up against the Gestapo; in the Balkans they discovered that the fiery local politics were as dangerous as the enemy; in the Burmese jungle they led native marauders in surprise attacks against the Japanese. They were a breed apart and this is their story -- compiled from interviews, diaries, letters and contemporary first-person accounts -- many never before published.
Russell Miller is an award-winning journalist and author. He was voted Writer of the Year by the British Magazine Editors and won four press awards while working for the Sunday Times magazine. His works include Behind the Lines, Magnum, The House of Getty, and Bunny: The Real Story of Playboy.
