Summary
The story of D-Day has been told from the point of view of the soldiers, the tacticians, and the generals who led it. But this epic event has never before been told from the perspectives of the key individuals in the Double Cross system. These include its director, a colorful assortment of MI5 handlers, and the five spies who formed Double Cross's nucleus: a Serbian playboy, a Polish fighter pilot, a bisexual Peruvian party girl, a deeply eccentric Spaniard, and a volatile Frenchwoman. The D-Day spies were one of the oddest military units ever assembled, and their success depended on the delicate relationship between spy and spymaster
