Resistance cells were small groups of armed men and women (called the Maquis in rural areas), who, in addition to their guerrilla warfare activities, were also publishers of underground newspapers, providers of first-hand intelligence information, and maintainers of escape networks that helped Allied soldiers and airmen trapped behind enemy lines. This second volume of the collection'Resistance' is devoted to the parachuting in and picking up of agents, from 1940 to 1944. It is a gripping exposition 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 research is rigorous and the information about both material and methods very precise, and the wealth of pictures will live up to the expectations of most the most demanding enthusiast. But above all, each reader can discover the more intimate personal life stories, from the training exercises in England awaiting departure, to the sacrifices so freely made in carrying out the missions.
