Saturday at M.I.9 is the inside story of the underground escape lines in occupied Northwest Europe which brought back to Britain over 4,000 Allied servicemen during World War Two.Airey Neave, who in the last two years of the war was the chief organizer at M.I.9 gives his own unique account. He describes how the escape lines began in the first dark days of German occupation and how, until the end of the war, thousands of ordinary men and women made their own contribution to the Allied victory by hiding and feeding men and guiding them to safety. "There isn't a page in the book which isn't exciting in incident, wise in judgment, and absorbing through its human involvement." Times Literary Supplement.
