W. STANLEY MOSS    Book Number: 90248    Product format: Paperback

The Classic Story of Wartime Daring, now with an introduction by W. Stanley Moss's daughter Gabriella Bullock and an afterword by Patrick Leigh-Fermor. W. Stanley Moss is a young British officer who along with Major Patrick Leigh-Fermor sets out in Nazi-occupied Crete to kidnap General Kreipe, Commander of the Sevastopol Division, and narrowly escaping the German manhunt, bring him off the island - a vital prisoner for British Intelligence. A classic real-life adventure story by the broadcaster and journalist who served with the Coldstream Guards and the SOE, the book was first published in 1950 and later adapted as a film starring Dirk Bogarde. Sir Ian Moncreiffe wrote both a prologue and an epilogue and distilled versions are included here in this 192 page facsimile paperback reprint.
