KIRKUS REVIEW

Story of underground rescue work as told by a man who engineered more than 500 escapes out of France, made contacts, found confederates, escorted political and intellectual figures across the border into Spain, evacuated some British officers via trawlers to Gibraltar, and eventually -- himself a suspect -- was forced to leave. A modern Scarlet Pimpernel, in an authentic tale.
