9781512357714: The Training Ground: As World War II rages in Europe a young Irish woman is blackmailed into espionage by her own country. (2016 Edition)

World war II rages in Europe and two British agents have lost their lives while trying to retrieve armaments plans from the German embassy in Madrid. British Intelligence realises that a completely new and unexpected approach is needed. They approach G2 (Irish Military Intelligence) with a daring proposal. Anna Fingal is a gifted linguist who works for the Department of Foreign Affairs in Dublin. She is blackmailed by her own country into aiding the Allied war effort. Seamus Halpin works for G2 and will accompany Anna on the mission. He has personal reasons for wanting to return to Madrid, to a city that continues to haunt him. Malcolm Mortimer works for British Intelligence. Initially sceptical about the use of Irish agents, his opinion changes as the mission progresses. His remit is to lead the mission and to succeed at any cost. These three diverse individuals become bound together in a world of espionage and deceit where survival and success for the mission is the ultimate goal. ‘Angela Currie spins fictional gold as she delves into the dark shadows of espionage during World War II. Officially neutral Ireland supplies secret agents in Spain for the Allied war effort, but those who risk their lives must face enemies both at home and abroad. A wonderful debut novel.’ Brendan Foley – ‘Under the Wire’

About the Author:

Angela Currie spent her formative years growing up near Navan, County Meath, Ireland. After leaving school she spent some time as an 'au pair' in Madrid. On her return to Ireland she enrolled for general nurse training in Dublin. Her career led her to Northern Ireland and the Accident and Emergency Department of the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast. In 1990 she left nursing behind and completed a degree at Queen's University Belfast. Following graduation she entered the world of clinical research. She retired from drug research in 2010. She is married with two children. This is her first novel. Author's note: Although fictional, this book has been inspired by the men and women of Ireland who fought so bravely in World War I and World War II.
