KIRKUS REVIEW

Exciting as a novel, Hollard's story as told to Martelli is a nightmarish prod to the conscience of the world for although it deals primarily with one of the most effective spy networks in France during World War II it is also an analysis of ""the process of human degradation"" perpetrated by the Nazis whom he contends were ""a different race"". How Hollard offered his services to British Intelligence and subsequently stumbled onto the secret of the V-1 rocket substantially mitigating the German attack on London, his sojourn as a prisoner of the Gestapo, his insightful conclusions, make for a vital portrait of recent terrifying history.
