MI9: Escape and Evasion 1939-1945 | [M. R. D. Foot, J. M. Langley]

MI9: Escape and Evasion 1939-1945

Forged passports, secret maps, ingenious disguises, underground networks - in times of war, tales of escape and evasion can be even more spectacular and heroic than those of victory in battle. Many of the most famous escapes in history took place during World War II. These daring flights from Nazi-occupied Europe would never have been possible but for the assistance of a hitherto secret British service: MI9. This small, dedicated and endlessly inventive team gave hope to the men who had fallen into enemy hands and aid to resistance fighters in occupied territory.

Publisher's Summary

Forged passports, secret maps, ingenious disguises, underground networks - in times of war, tales of escape and evasion can be even more spectacular and heroic than those of victory in battle. Many of the most famous escapes in history took place during World War II.

These daring flights from Nazi-occupied Europe would never have been possible but for the assistance of a hitherto secret British service: MI9. This small, dedicated and endlessly inventive team gave hope to the men who had fallen into enemy hands and aid to resistance fighters in occupied territory. It sent in money, maps, clothes, compasses, even hacksaws - and in return coded letters from the prisoner-of-war camps provided invaluable news of what was happening in the enemy’s homeland.

Understaffed and under-resourced, MI9 nonetheless made a terrific contribution to the Allied war effort. First published in 1979, this book tells the full, inside story of an extraordinary organisation. Originally published in 1979. Read by Michael Fenton-Stevens (Last Trains, Lovejoy, Long Earth, The Science Of Discworld, Spitting Image, KYTV, Radio Active, Only Fools & Horses)

    "How could this topic be so BORING?"

    Dull, tedious, ponderous. I honestly can't find any reason to recommend this title. Don't waste your time.
