2nd Impression. It was known as the Comet Line; it was the greatest escape route in the Resistance Movement; and in its three years of life it saved over 800 airmen and soldiers from captivity, returning them to Britain. ‘Little Cyclone’ was the nom-de-guerre of Andrée de Jongh, the young Belgian girl who created the route through from Brussels to Bilbao. And there can have been few stories to match hers in terms of courage, inspiration and loyalty in the most appalling wartime conditions. 3pp. Publishers advertisements to the rear.
