The Special Operations Executive, Britain's premier spy and sabotage organization during World War II, has become the model for many subsequent intelligence and subversive organizations. After fifty years, the British government has been making new material on the SOE available, and many individuals are now free to reveal some or all of their wartime exploits. Margaret Pawley's story is one of the most interesting of the new revelations. She was one of the 2,000 members of a British nursing corps, the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry, who assisted in SOE operations. Concentrating on her own activities in the Mediterranean, Pawley reveals on important untold piece of wartime history.
