    Hi Sniper,
    If you like what you read about this very heroic lady, the highest decorated of the 39/45 war, then try to find her own story, The White Mouse.
    This will give you a fuller account of her activities which were so essential to the success of many of the maqui operations.

    Hi Keith,
    I will certainly give the book a read if i can get hold of it. If anyone has any other SOE's members names who have written a book i would be interested in hearing from you.

    Hi Sniper,
    If you enter Nancy Wake into your search engine and press enter, you will have loads of info at your fingertips.

    There are many entries to this brave, magnificent, very gutsy lady who was so proud to be a Kiwi.

    sub001.jpg Hi All,
    Just about finished "One of our Submarines" by Edward Young.
    A gripping and well written story of the adventures of an RNVR officer in wartime.
    If you see it, buy it and read it.

    "The Road Home" detailing first hand accounts of soldiers on the front line in WW1 & their reaction to the news of the Armistice. Very sad some of it but also surprising as to some of the comments like "What are we going to do now that the war is over"? The trenches were for some a way of life considering a minority of them had been in the firing line for four long years, unbelievable. It also gives accounts from civilians, POW's and other sections of society at that time. Good read.

    Just reading "Twelve days on the Somme" by Sidney Rodgerson. Quite simply a magnificent description of what life was really like in the trenches, very little direct action but the constant fear from artillery or an enemy you can't see. The simple joys of soldiers getting a hot cup of tea is really brought home to the reader.
  9. I just finished "The Jericho Sanction" by Oliver North. Next on my list is a re-read of "Star Wars Rogue Planet", and then either "Assassins" by Oliver North or "Gideon's Torch" by Charles Colson

    That one looks good.As we all know,the ANZACs were some bad boys,and contributed immeasurably to the war.I served with an Aussie liason officer at Fort Lewis,and his grandfather had served with the ANZACs.

    FIRE IN THE SKY, The Air War in the South Pacific, by Eric M. Bergerud.
    Very, very good read and most informative.

    The Other Eisenhower - by Di Tillo and Campana - a novel based on a real security breach at the War Office just days before D-Day. A real page turner.
