    One thought on “Mission Accomplished: SOE and Italy 1943-1945”

    1. Very informative, well researched and written, it's the official history of the connection between the SOE and the Italian resistance. A little bit cloak and daggerish perhaps, if you approach it as just another boring scholarly book of the kind I write, but that makes it even more interesting! Highly recommended
