Description

Prepare for more than seventy tales of espionage, sabotage, and heroics, including thrilling accounts of impossible rescues, ingenious secret networks, and high-stakes U. S. ranger missions within enemy territory.

In Daring Missions of World War II, distinguished historian William Breuer sheds light on these incredible missions, and critical victories in the air and on the ground. Vivid, fast paced, and dramatic, this title introduces you to the heroes and heroines who risked their lives for victory, and sometimes, notoriety.

Among those you'll discover are:

-Lieutenant Colonel Montague R. Chidson, who single-handedly saved Amsterdam's Diamond cache from the Nazis.
-General Henri Honrore Giraud, who escaped twice from the Germans, the second time from an escape-proof prison.
-Mathilde Carre, aka, "La Chatte (the cat)," the only female triple agent of WWII.
-The Kachins, a small mountain tribe in Upper Burma, who helped the Allies dislodge a Japanese stronghold.

Whether you're a history buff or are simply looking for a thrilling read, Daring Mission of World War II allows you to watch history change and to meet the extraordinary men and women from all corners of the world who were responsible.
