Information
'A thrilling adventure story. You can smell the fields and forests of Brittany and sense the approaching danger of the murderous Cossacks' Sunday Express

Andre Hue was a daredevil. By the age of twenty the Anglo-Frenchman had survived shipwreck and years undercover in France, sabotaging German supply lines. Returning to Britain, he was recruited by SOE to parachute behind enemy lines on 5 June 1944, to unite resistance forces in Brittany and paralyze local German troops during the Allied invasion.

Though Hue's mission was fraught with difficulty – he missed his landing site, his secret base camp became the site of a pitch battle and a band of Cossacks tried to hunt him down – he knew that thousands of lives depended on his success or failure . . .
