This amazing book collects together true tales of South West spies in World War II from across the West Country and the South West. From the Plymouth rescue operations as the exodus from France began, to the secret guerrilla army in Plymstock, the first German spies, the amazing story of Jasper Lawn of N51, and the Helford Flotilla (told here for the first time in print), and the true story of the "Comet Line," which established the first route back to the West Country for escaping POWs, agents, and crashed airmen, this book will amaze and delight in equal measure. With Cornish airmen fighting their way across France to get to the West Country, delivery men serving the French resistance, D-Day stories, and the strange true story of the Spanish Chicken Farmer and Agent Garbo, get it while you can!
