Product description

The best collection of military, espionage, and adventure stories ever told. The Dialogue Espionage Classics series began in 2010 with the purpose of bringing back classic out-of-print spying and espionage tales. From WWI and WWII to the Cold War, D-Day to the SOE, Bletchley Park to the Comet Line this fascinating spy history series brings you the best stories that should never be forgotten. Many famous escapes from Nazi-occupied Europe were made possible by a hitherto secret British service MI 9. This small, dedicated and endlessly inventive team constantly exchanged coded letters with prisoner-of-war camps. It was It sent in money, maps, clothes, compasses, hacksaws; the prisoners sent out invaluable news of what was going on in the enemy's homeland. It was also responsible for aiding resistance fighters in enemy-occupied territory. Understaffed and under-resourced, MI 9 nonetheless made a terrific contribution to the Allies war effort, using sheer inventiveness to help free British servicemen trapped overseas and to gather intelligence on the Nazis. First published in 1979, this book tells the full inside story of MI9.
