Madeleine's war

by Peter Watson | 12 July 2016
When Colonel Matthew Hammond posted to the European theater during World War II, he sustained a serious injury on the front lines that cost him a lung. Now he is back in England, unable to fight, but continuing to serve his country by training new resistance fighters in SC2, a secret spy organisation. One of the recruits under his tutelage is the beautiful Madeleine Dirac, a spellbinding French-Canadian nurse. Despite protocols discouraging romance, they fall deeply in love. Matthew is torn about putting Madeleine's life in danger: he has mixed duty and pleasure before, with tragic results--his former lover, Celestine, was killed in an attempt to assassinate a Nazi doctor. But the Allies are mustering all their resources for crucial beach landings in Normandy, and Matthew knows his unit will be needed to parachute in behind Nazi lines... A gripping tale of love and espionage, Madeleine's War bears the hallmarks of Peter Watson's powers as a historian, with exquisite details on the inner workings of spycraft and military life.
