Game of Spies: The Secret Agent, the Traitor and the Nazi, Bordeaux 1942-1944

by Paddy Ashdown

Game of Spies: The Secret Agent, the Traitor and the Nazi, Bordeaux 1942-1944 Synopsis

Spies, bed-hopping, treachery and executions - this story of espionage in wartime Bordeaux is told for the first time.Game of Spies uncovers a lethal spy triangle at work during the Second World War. The story centres on three men - on British, one French and one German - and the duels they fought out in an atmosphere of collaboration, betrayal and assassination, in which comrades sold fellow comrades, Allied agents and downed pilots to the Germans, as casually as they would a bottle of wine.In this thrilling history of how ordinary, untrained people in occupied Europe faced the great questions of life, death and survival, Paddy Ashdown tells a fast-paced tale of SOE, betrayal and bloodshed in the city labelled 'la plus belle collaboratrice' in the whole of France.
