Spies and Secret Agents. Thrilling rescues and bizarre inventions. Informers and double agents. Thrilling true tales of World War Two espionage in Devon and Cornwall brought together for the very first time.
“There is enough detail in the meticulously researched volume to satisfy those with a strong interest in history. But South West Secret Agents is also about the personal and the normal – or what became routine in Britain’s “darkest hour”, as wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill described the early part of World War Two. There’s a broad sweep to Laura’s book, too. She sheds light on the big picture as well as the small-scale.”
