Overview

Riveting tales of behind-the-lines action during World War II
In his latest collection, popular historian William Breuer chronicles the action behind the lines during World War II. Focusing on espionage, underground activities, and special forces operations, Breuer captures the human drama that has made his earlier books so successful. From impossible rescues and ingenious underground networks to amazing paratroop operations and U.S. Ranger missions within enemy positions, Daring Missions of World War II presents over seventy fascinating tales of espionage, sabotage, and derring-do. Bringing to light heretofore little-known acts of heroism and covert activities that helped the Allies win critical victories—from the American medics who saved the life of a young Ho Chi Minh in Southeast Asia to the Norwegian doctor who built a spy radio into the dentures of one of his patients—these stories are vividly written, fast-paced, and satisfyingly dramatic.

William B. Breuer (Cleveland, TN) is a military historian and author of over twenty books, most of them related to World War II. Eleven of his previous books have been Main Selections of the Military Book Club.
