A thrilling history of MI9—the WWII organization that engineered the escape of Allied forces from behind enemy lines When Allied fighters were trapped behind enemy lines, one branch of military intelligence helped them escape: MI9. The organization set up clandestine routes that zigzagged across Nazi-occupied Europe, enabling soldiers and airmen to make their way home. Secret agents and resistance fighters risked their lives and those of their families to hide the men. Drawing on declassified files and eye-witness testimonies from across Europe and the United States, Helen Fry provides a significant reassessment of MI9’s wartime role. Central to its success were figures such as Airey Neave, Jimmy Langley, Sam Derry, and Mary Lindell, who was one of only a few women parachuted into enemy territory for MI9. This astonishing account combines escape and evasion tales with the previously untold stories behind the establishment of MI9—and reveals how the organization saved thousands of lives.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Important, informative and engaging. Fry draws an engrossing picture of the commitment and courage of tens of thousands of agents who helped ‘escapers’ and ‘evaders’ in the European Theater of Operations.” Michael Jago, author of The Man Who Was George Smiley
“Behind every Allied great escape in WWII there stood the brave and resourceful men and women of MI9, an intelligence organization today almost completely forgotten…A masterful retelling with a fascinating cast of characters straight out of a John le Carré thriller.” Mark Felton, author of Castle of the Eagles
“A masterful page turner you won’t be able to put down. The story of MI9 is one of the most inspiring and exciting of all WWII narratives.” Alex Kershaw, author of Avenue of Spies
