What the Critics Say

"There are so many remarkable things about They Dared Return one barely knows where to begin.... [It] compares easily to the most engaging thrillers you might care to read, but the fact that none of this is fiction makes the story all the more compelling. A compelling and thought-provoking book.” (January magazine)
"Armed with research in the National Archives, confidential documents and personal interviews, O'Donnell tells a heart-stopping tale of sabotage by men and women who placed everything on the line against a seemingly unstoppable tyranny." (Publishers Weekly)

Entertaining and colourful stories

This was moderately enjoyable to me only, but perhaps it is a matter of taste. When I read that the author is a 'combat historian', that may be the tip-off. It seemed to go at quite a clip (partly the narrator) and not really give you a real feeling of place or setting or even danger. However, some of the stories are quite funny and the book suggests that to be a successful spy, you have to be a 'hustler', so you can be sure their exploits would amuse.
