Description-
  • "A revealing look into the intrigue and extraordinary courage of our intelligence gatherers of World War II. A rare combination of suspense thriller and true heroism by a great American writer." -Clive Cussler, New York Times best-selling author

    "Operatives, Spies, and Saboteurs is a superbly told story of the men and women of the OSS. They helped write the book on special operations. I was struck by the similarity of the context of their stories to ones I've experienced in different combat situations. This book is a must-read for those in the special operations business today and anyone else who wants to learn about the exploits of the real warriors of the OSS during WWII. Only by understanding the deeds of those who have gone before us can we appreciate the sacrifices made that paved the way for the outstanding records established by present-day special warriors." -Captain Robert A. Gormly, USN (Ret.), author of Combat Swimmer and former SEAL team commander
Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Say the word "spies" and most people think of computers and satellites. Not so during WWII, when the U.S. created the Office of Special Services (OSS), a group of agents who helped prepare the Allies for their most important missions, including the landing at Normandy. These men--and often women--overcame great obstacles, and their generally untold stories not only are fascinating, they were critical for success in the war. The OSS's actions also set the stage for all the spies and operatives who would follow them. Christopher Lane's reading gives proper due to these agents, who did everything from acts of sabotage to seducing military leaders in order to learn secret codes. He clearly relishes these tales, and his interest and enthusiasm for Patrick K. O'Donnell's superb book shine through at every turn. D.J.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine
