To pave the way for the Allied liberation of France, spies and resistance fighters were ordered (in Churchill's words) 'to set Europe ablaze'. The 'Jedburgh' teams were created in 1943 to do just that. It was the first modern multi-national combat unit: American, British and French soldiers combined to form a unique special forces organisation. They fought in uniform, behind German lines, and played a key role in the Allied victory in 1944. Roger Ford has tracked down survivors and their after-action reports to tell their amazing story: classic 'behind the lines' real life action.
Now living in the south of France, Roger Ford has contributed to numerous military partworks and magazines.
