Riguardo questo articolo

The year was 1944. A number of the French Resistance members were being held in Amiens prison, and as their colleagues were shot, morale fell dramatically. So two men, Pepe and Ponchardier, devised a plan and with R.A.F. assistance, morale was improved. These 171 pages plus Appendices, tell the tale. Text complemented by approx. 17 b/w illustrations and photographs. Learn more about : Vire Estuary, Operation Renovate, Chobiere, Maquis, Alibi Network and Gendarme Lenglet. Cond : Boards are light blue with gilt lettering - spine only. End-papers are white. D.J. is white with gold, purple and brown artwork. (Advert for KKK book on back.) D.J. illustration is of a breached wall and eleven fleeing figures. D.J. has been price-clipped. P/O name and R.C.A.F. affiliation on front pastedown. Some photos (only) have a curious `damp-crinkle ' - publisher's flaw (??). Binding tight, not sun-faded. Light soiling throughout. No tears, no creases. No marks in text block. Excellent WWII reference !! Quote (p. 149) : " ._._. with only a few yards to spare, and flew over the road from Dieppe to Treport, indistinguishable now in the thick snow. With our Mustangs clinging close, we followed the valley down one side, and back up the other, crossing the Somme valley. Amiens lay to our right. ". Codice inventario libreria 005876
