Hugh Verity was commander of the Lysanders, small aircraft which flew into France in secret to support the French Resistance and Special Operations Executive during the Second World War. For his bravery, the Author was awarded a double DSO and DFC, as well as Officier de la Legion d-Honneur and Croix de Guerre. Both signatories are mentioned extensively in the text, which was completely revised from the original 1978 edition to include new information on actual actions and identities together with a mass of recently revealed material. Flt. Lt. R.G. (Bob) Large was a Spitfire and Lysander pilot, who flew Violette Szabo, SOE operative and subject of the film “Carve Her Name With Pride” back to England following her first mission, while Murray Anderson was a Lysander pilot awarded DFC and bar in the Special Duties Squadron, and was the most successful pick-up pilot of 1944.
