"A most enjoyable and informative read on these tragic events. It is hard to imagine the level of heroism shown by the parachutists and all those, both young and old, who gave them shelter and every assistance at their disposal. Though a short book, I congratulate its author for leaving no stone unturned in his research. By doing this he has achieved something seldom found in books of an historical nature. That is, giving the reader a real feeling of familiarity with the people involved and a sense of gratitude for doing that. I thank you."
