On Churchill's orders, an SOE agent parachuted into German-occupied Yugoslavia in 1943 to cut a deal with communist partisans who had an agenda far beyond defeating the Nazis. The prime minister realized the dangers of cooperating with the communists.
A Spanish civilian spying for Germany was actually an intrepid enemy of fascism. Decorated by Germany and Britain alike, he ran an imaginary network of spies and produced fake intelligence that reached the desk of the Führer himself.
How did the Nazis penetrate the French Resistance? Why were so many British agents captured after landing in France? Part of the answer may lie with an agent who worked with the Germans and the British--and may also have reported to a third party.
For much of WWII, the SOE waged a successful secret war in occupied France. But the woman at the heart of it all also presided over a series of bungled operations that delivered agents straight into the hands of the Gestapo.
