This second volume of the collection Resistance is devoted to the parachuting and picking up of agents, from 1940 to 1944. It is a gripping frieze of these operations and a vigorous tribute to those heroes of the resistance whom the author describes here, using both his extensive personal documentation, connections among the veterans and many museum conservators throughout Europe. The reconstitution is rigorous and the information precise about both material and methods, and the wealth of pictures will live up to the expectations of most enlightened amateurs. But above all, each reader can discover the personal life stories more intimately, from the training exercises in England awaiting departure, to the sacrifices made so freely in carrying out the missions.
