SOE in the Far East

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This hardcover book is in good condition overall. The cover of the book has a gilded title on the spine and is in good condition without major issue. The dust jacket is included and has some minor wear throughout. The jacket has also been price cut. Inside, the pages of the book are in very good condition and the vast majority of pages are without any issue. At the front of the book there is an inscription written in black ink.

'The whole course of World War II in the Far East might have been changed if the activities of Special Operations Executive (SOE) had been given a freer rein by the military and politicians. This is the startling conclusion of Dr Cruickshank's official history, based on secret files and the accounts of surviving agents. The first part of the book is a fascinating survey of the techniques used in clandestine jungle operations. The second part examines the hazardous work of the special agents who were infiltrated by air and sea into the five countries of Mountbatten's South East Asia Command.'
