    Description
    Information
    The secret of SOE's code war revealed for the first time.

    This is the witty, engrossing and highly personalised account of Leo Marks' experiences during World War II. He worked for the SOE - responsible for placing, monitoring and communicating with all British secret agents working in enemy territory. Marks played a crucial role, reinventing how agents sent coded messages back to London and using every trick in the book to get his way.

    This is a mixture of high level espionage, cynical commentary on government power struggles, human feeling for the gents risking everything for the war effort, and a keen sense of the absurd.
