This story couldn't be told until 1976: about the men and women
This story couldn't be told until 1976: about the men and women who saw the menace of Hitler and the National Socialists and, as volunteers and working clandestinely, began to organize in Great Britain and America to fight against what seemed to be impossible odds. "Intrepid" himself, a brilliant, brave, and multifaceted man, wrote in the Introduction: "I willingly answered all the author's many and probing questions, for they are part of the larger question that must be answered now and in the future -- 'will the democracies consent to their own survival?' We failed to face that critical question prior to 1939. Not one of the democracies honestly confronted the obvious threats to its survival."Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

We in the free world owe our lives and freedom in large part to these heroic men and women, many of whom were captured and endured torture and were executed. This is their story: it is every generation's decision whether to carry that torch forward.

Compelling read. Eye opening.
"Wild Bill" Donovan and Bill Stevenson are only part of this great story. Roosevelt's involvement many months prior to U.S. entering the war is startling. A history lesson that totally involved me for several weeks.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
