about this item

Churchill's wartime secret agent, saboteur, the father of French combat swimmers, Robert "Bob" Maloubier, is an extraordinary man and one of the 20th century’s greatest adventurers. He joined SOE aged 19 and survived 3 gunshot wounds, German prison camps, an escape from Bizerte when it was invaded by the Afrika Korps, and the assassination of Admiral Darlan Fernand Bonnier by his former high school classmate Chapel. He left the British Army with the rank of captain and the prestigious DSO. With lots of emotion, wit, and eloquence, he plunges us into a time when dirty tricks and heroism mingle and gets under the skin of these underground fighters. This is the true story of a hero of the war, one of the last survivors of the SOE.
