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. The book was originally published in 1979.
