All Resistance and radio buffs have been waiting for this book, abundantly illustrated and giving an exhaustive account of the real champions of Free France; the Allied underground radio operators parachuted into Occupied Territory. Ruthlessly pursued by the Germans, the radio operators had a life expectancy of six months. For the first time, the training they received in England is described in detail and five accounts describe how these heroes lived daily. Most of the radio equipment, some of which is very rare, is shown for the first time in colour photos. The son of a Resistance worker, Jean-Louis Perquin has earned the friendship and the trust of the veterans and has distinguished himself by publishing articles on what Allied special agents wore when they were dropped into enemy occupied territory. In touch with a lot of historians and museum curators in the US, Great Britain, Norway and France, he has drawn up this first title in the"Resistance" collection with devotion and humility.
