The Second World War saw the rapid development of infrastructures by the Allies to support their SD operations, mirrored in other combatant nations' activities. Operating in all weathers, invariably at night, often at low level and usually without fighter escort, the SD squadrons and units paid a heavy price in aircrew killed and missing. By their very nature, these operations went unreported in wartime and for some considerable time thereafter. The exploits of British and Commonwealth, American, Free European, Soviet, German, Italian and Japanese airmen and units are recorded in this compelling narrative account.
