Saturday at M.I.9 is the inside story of the underground escape lines in occupied North-West Europe which brought back to Britain over 4,000 Allied servicemen during World War Two. Airey Neave, who in the last two years of the war was the chief organizer at M.I.9, gives his own unique account. He describes how the escape lines began in the first dark days of German occupation and how, until the end of the war, thousands of ordinary men and women made their own contribution to the Allied victory by hiding and feeding men and guiding them to safety. AUTHOR: Airey Neave was the first British POW to make a ?home run? from Colditz Castle. On his return he joined M.I.9 adopting the code name Saturday. He was involved in the Nuremburg war trials. His World War II memoir ?They have Their Exits? was republished in 2002 and his classic account of the fall of Calais. SELLING POINTS: ? A graphic description of the underground escape network that existed in occupied Europe during World War II ? Thrilling stories of great courage, adventure and treachery ? The author, a household name, has first hand knowledge of the secret organizations and escape lines REVIEWS: ?There isn?t a page in the book which isn?t exciting in incident, wise in judgment, and absorbing through its human involvement? ?
