I really loved this book. It motivated me to buy a hard copy. It shows a history of a great group (OSS) of people who you won't find anywhere else. I was completely surprised that these "made for movie" type operations and people really exisited. From our men getting tortured and killed to OSS operatives knowing what would happen to the fate of some of the captures we received, this book is very graphic and extremely invigorating.
I suggest it to anyone who is interested in history, the military, intelligence, or sacrifice.

Extremely Poor Narrator
I purchased this ebook based on the recommendation of a friend, who, knowing my love of history, and the OSS in particular because my father spent his war life working in the OSS during WWII, thought I would enjoy this book. I DID NOT ENJOY THIS BOOK!.
And the whole reason is because of the narrator, Mr. Christopher Lane.
SUMMARY: Mr. Lane needs to either go to a school to learn how to do accents and dialects before spewing forth verbal garbage such as in this book that ruins the whole ebook presentation.
I DID enjoy the historical information presented in the book itself, but this was all ruined because Mr. Lane thinks that he has the ability to mimic different language accents and dialects, which he CANNOT do at all because every foreign language he attempts sounds the same.
If I could just award separate ratings for the book, and for the ebook voicing performance or presentation of the book, I would rate the book at 4.5, and the ebook voicing at a negative 5.
Therefore, in summary I have to give this book a 1 since that is the lowest rating available.
