XAVIER: A British Secret Agent with the French Resistance

RICHARD HESLOP    Book Number: 82430    Product format: Paperback

Alive with the high tension of clandestine warfare this unemotional account of a professional agent is distinguished by an intelligence and natural authority. Colonel Richard Heslop, alias Xavier, was one of Britain's greatest Special Operations Agents in France, ingeniously orchestrating Resistance groups and ruthlessly sabotaging German operations from late 1942 right through to D-Day. Sent to France in the middle of the conflict, he delicately balanced clandestine missions and dangerous wartime operations on a daily basis, yet his name barely gets a mention in SOE accounts, making this insight all the more fascinating today. It is clear that his role is like no other, a job that involved frequent encounters with the terrifying possibilities of capture, torture and death. It was a job that involved acts of sabotage, espionage, theft and sometimes even murder. A true story of one of Britain's greatest secret agents. 306pp in paperback, with eight pages of photos.
