As Great Britain prepared its military to battle Nazi Germany in World War II, a select few were deployed behind enemy lines as part of a new program to lead a resistance, carry out intelligence operations and harass German forces, slowing their ability to solidify control of the continent. In this episode of the podcast, we hear the true story of two brothers tasked with just such a mission.
Stratfor Chief Security Officer Fred Burton sits down with author, journalist and Stratfor Worldview Contributor Charles Glass to discuss his latest book, They Fought Alone: The True Story of the Starr Brothers, British Secret Agents in Nazi-occupied France.
