Behind Enemy Lines is an examination of gender relations in wartime using the Special Operations Executive as a case study. Drawing on personal testimonies, official records, and film, it explores the extraordinary experiences of male and female agents who were recruited and trained by a British organization and infiltrated Nazi-Occupied France to encourage sabotage and subversion during the Second World War. It examines how ordinary, law-abiding civilians were transformed into paramilitary secret agents equipped with silent killing techniques and trained in unarmed combat. This examination of the agents of an officially sponsored insurgent organization makes a major contribution to British socio-cultural history, war studies, and gender studies. It will appeal to both the general reader as well as to those in the academic community.

With three Military Crosses, three Croix de guerre, a Légion d'honneur and a papal knighthood for his heroics during the Second World War, Sir Tommy Macpherson is the most decorated living soldier of the British Army. Yet for 65 years the Highlander's story has remained untold. Few know how, aged 21, he persuaded 23,000 SS soldiers of the feared Das Reich tank column to surrender, or how Tommy almost single-handedly stopped Tito's Yugoslavia annexing the whole of north-east Italy. Twice captured, he escaped both times, marching through hundreds of miles of German-held territory to get home. Still a schoolboy when war broke out, Tommy quickly matured into a legendary commando, and his remarkable story features a dizzyingly diverse cast of characters, including Winston Churchill, Field Marshal Montgomery and Charles de Gaulle.

During the Second World War, almost one hundred Canadians served the Allied forces by passing as locals in occupied countries. At the behest of two British secret services, these men made language and custom their costumes. They risked their lives assisting resistance groups in sabotage and ambush missions or in smuggling Allied airmen out of occupied territories. Quiet heroes of the war, these bold Canadians helped to make the brutal and unrelenting warfare of the underground a potent weapon in the Allied arsenal. This is a study of unstinting personal courage in the face of overwhelming odds.

Clandestine radio operators had one of the most dangerous jobs of World War 2. Those in Nazi-occupied Europe for the SOE, MI6 and the OSS had a life-expectancy of just six weeks. In the Gilbert Islands the Japanese decapitated 17 New Zealand ‘Coastwatchers’. These ‘behind the lines’ highly skilled agents’ main tasks were to maintain regular contact with their home base and pass vital intelligence back. As this meticulously researched book reveals, many operators did more than that. Norwegian Odd Starheim hijacked a ship and sailed it to the Shetlands. In the Solomon Islands Jack Read and Paul Mason warned the defenders of Guadalcanal about incoming enemy air raids giving American fighters a chance to inflict irreversible damage on the Japanese Air Force. In 1944 Arthur Brown was central to Operation Jedburgh’s success delaying the arrival of the SS Das Reich armored division at the Normandy beach-heads. The author also explains in layman’s terms the technology of 1940s radios and the ingenious codes used. Most importantly, Covert Radio Agents tells the dramatic human stories of these gallant behind-the-lines radio agents. Who were they? How were they trained? How did they survive against the odds? This is both a highly informative and uplifting work about unsung heroes.

After a frustrating spell in the infantry, Maingard joined the Special Operations Executive (SOE), He parachuted into occupied France in 1943 to join the Stationer circuit, initially as radio operator but soon was second-in-command in the circuit, arranging the delivery of weapons, supplies and personnel to the Resistance. After a years clandestine work, he narrowly escaped the fate of his organiser who was, captured by the Germans in May 1944. Undeterred, Maingard developed his own Shipwright circuit in time to support the Forces Franaises de lIntrieure (FFI) and the arrival of fifty-five men of 1st SAS Regiment for the ill-fated Operation BULBASKET shortly after D-Day. Somehow managing to keep the peace among the Gaullists, communists, British and Americans fighting for the French common cause, Maingard continued his vital work until the liberation of central France, earning recognition from both the British and French governments. He went onto play a leading role in Mauritius. Behind Enemy Lines With the SAS is more than a story of great bravery and dedication to duty in wartime. Maingard returned to Mauritius and was instrumental in developing the islands tourism and hotel industry. Founder and first Chairman of Air Mauritius, he became one of his countrys most successful post-war businessmen before illness cut short his ambition and he died in 1981 at the age of 62. Readers will be grateful to Amde Maingards biographer for making this remarkable mans achievements in peace and war better known.

Cut Off Behind Enemy Lines in the Battle of the Bulge with Two Small Children Ernest Hemingway and Other Assorted Misanthropes

The story of a skirt-chasing 23 year old GI reporter for Yank magazine who haplessly stumbles right into the opening hours of the Battle of the Bulge and results in an extraordiary odyssey to save the lives of two orphaned Jewish children, 6-year old Lisa and her 7-year old brother Friedrich. It's just over a week before Christmas, 1944. The German army, thought to be nearly "kaput", has just opened the surprisingly brutal Ardennes offensive - smashing through lightly held American lines in the countryside of Belgium. Davidson, having just completed a romantic interlude in Brussels, smells a story and jumps in his Jeep - the "Lootwagen" - which he keps well stocked with nylons, liquor and cigarettes - necessary currency for a young reporter in search of the "action". Some of the dates and places don't quite seem to jibe with historical fact, but Davidson's self-deprecating humor overrides concerns over historic accuracy of the account. There's a little of everything - heroic soldiers, deserters, the Belgian resistance, black marketeers, and a drunken, clueless Ernest Hemingway.

CORRECTED! Go Behind Enemy Lines is a parabolic story about Yecobi, his people and a seemingly never-ending war. The Humans are in a seemingly never-ending war against Drekal’s cohorts, the war started well over three thousand years ago. But in the midst of this Great War a man is born and a new weapon is introduced to the Humans. Will this man and this weapon that he totes succeed in eventually bringing the victory to the Humans, the descendants of the Humans, or to anyone? Or will it be thrown away like yesterday’s trash? You may have read many of Winner Torborg’s books, you may have come to know Winner’s writings and thought of his as a teacher, that is a good assumption. But Winner has taken this assignment to write this parabolic story. Read it and think about what it could be talking to you about.
