Overview

"Owen Reed was parachuted into German-occupied Croatia where he worked very successfully with Tito's Partisans and other Allied secret organisations such as the Special Operations Executive, gathering intelligence, arranging airborne supplies, and helping escaped prisoners of war to reach freedom. But after reporting back to London in July 1944, Reed returned to Yugoslavia to find relations with the Partisans deteriorating." Blending biography with operational history, this book tells the remarkable human story of how a very unassuming citizen soldier found his way from the battlefield of El Alamein into the clandestine world of secret intelligence and challenges earlier assessments of SIS activities in this important theatre.
