"SOE Agent: Churchill's Secret Warriors is a wonderful book documenting the selection and preparation of Special Operations Executive personnel for field work. It is also a great complement to other books on the topic of actual SOE missions all around Europe, as it provides clues on why agents conducted their missions in the manners they did." --C Peter Chen, World War II Database (January 2009)
"This book tells how [agents] were recruited, how they were trained, how they were clothed, the weapons that they used, and the tactics they used. It tells of life behind the lines and the stories of many who survived the war, either by returning to the UK or in German concentration camps. These people were frequently not wearing uniforms so were treated as spies when caught. It also tells of the considerable in-fighting between various branches of the British government over who would control these assets. This is all enhanced by a superb choice of photographs as well as the artwork of illustrator Steve Noon... A book that I found to be an enthralling read." --Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (March 2009)
