The wartime adventures of the legendary SOE agent Harry Rée, told in his own words.
A schoolteacher at the start of the war, Harry Rée renounced his former pacifism with the fall of France in 1940. He was deployed into a secret branch of the British army and parachuted into central France in April 1943.
