9780141015804: The Next Moon: The Remarkable True Story of a British Agent Behind the Lines in Wartime France

'A gripping story: There cannot be many clearer or more detailed accounts of the operations of the French resistance, and Hue's death-defying adventures make for riveting reading' New Statesman

Andre Hue was something of a daredevil. By the age of twenty the Anglo-Frenchman had survived shipwreck and years undercover in France, sabotaging German supply lines. Returning to Britain, he was recruited by SOE to parachute behind enemy lines on 5 June 1944, to unite resistance forces in Brittany and paralyze local German troops during the Allied invasion. Though Hue's mission was fraught with difficulty - he missed his landing site, his secret base camp became the site of a pitch battle and a band of Cossacks tried to hunt him down - he knew that thousands of lives depended on his success or failure.

About the Author:

Andre Hue was born in Swansea of a Welsh mother and French father, and brought up in France. He was recruited by SOE and parachuted into Brittany, where he displayed outstanding bravery for which he was awarded both the DSO and the Croix de Guerre. He was later dropped behind enemy lines in Burma, and after the war joined MI6. He is in his 80s, and lives with his wife in Sussex.
