Abducting a General
10,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A daring behind-enemy-lines mission from the author of A Time of Gifts and The Broken Road, who was once described by the BBC as 'a cross between Indiana Jones, James Bond and Graham Greene'. Although a story often told, this is the first time Patrick Leigh Fermor's own account of the kidnapping of General Kriepe, has been published. One of the greatest feats in Patrick Leigh Fermor's remarkable life was the kidnapping of General Kreipe, the German commander in Crete, on 26 April 1944. He and Captain Billy Moss hatched a daring plan to abduct the general, while ensuring that no reprisals were taken against the Cretan population. Dressed as German military police, they stopped and took control of Kreipe's car, drove through twenty-two German checkpoints, then succeeded in hiding from the German army before finally being picked up on a beach in the south of the island and transported to safety in Egypt on 14 May. Abducting a General is Leigh Fermor's own account of the kidnap, published for the first time. Written in his inimitable prose, and introduced by acclaimed Special Operations Executive historian Roderick Bailey, it is a glorious first-hand account of one of the great adventures of the Second World War. Also included in this book are Leigh Fermor's intelligence reports, sent from caves deep within Crete yet still retaining his remarkable prose skills, which bring the immediacy of SOE operations vividly alive, as well as the peril which the SOE and Resistance were operating under; and a guide to the journey that Kreipe was taken on, as seen in the 1957 film Ill Met by Moonlight starring Dirk Bogarde, from the abandonment of his car to the embarkation site so that the modern visitor can relive this extraordinary event.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In S. C. Perkins's Lineage Most Lethal, the captivating second mystery in the Ancestry Detective series, Texas genealogist Lucy Lancaster grapples with a mystery rooted in World War II and espionage.It's the week before New Year's Eve and genealogist Lucy Lancaster is ready to mix work and play at the beautiful Hotel Sutton, enjoying herself while finalizing the presentation for her latest client, hotel heiress Pippa Sutton. Freshly arrived at the hotel-and determined not to think about Special Agent Ben Turner, who went radio silent on her after one date-Lucy is stopped in her tracks when a strange man comes staggering toward her. She barely has time to notice his weak, sweaty appearance before he presses a classic Montblanc pen onto her hand, gasps, "Keep them safe," and collapses at her feet, dead.When Lucy shows the fountain pen to her grandfather, an avid collector and World War II veteran, she's in for another shock. Not only does Grandpa recognize the Montblanc, he also reveals a secret: he was an Allied spy during the war and the pen is both a message regarding one of his wartime missions and the key to reading a microdot left by the dead man. On the microdot is a series of ciphers, some decrypted to form names. Could they be the descendants of Grandpa's fellow spies? When two from the list end up murdered-including the chef at the Hotel Sutton-and Grandpa's life is put in jeopardy, Lucy's sure she's right. And with Lucy's and Pippa's names possibly on the list, too, she's got to uncover the past to protect those in the present.With a secret Allied mission, old grievances, and traitors hiding behind every corner, Lucy must use her research skills to trace the list's World War II ancestors and connect the dots to find a killer in their midst-a killer who's determined to make sure some lineages end once and for all.

What is the matter with you? We do not need his money! She stood behind him; her hands on her hips. "It's not about the money." His voice was calm. He could have told her what day of the week it was with the same level of excitement. "Then why? Why must you go back and try to get yourself killed? You have responsibilities here!" Sam stopped brushing and seemed ready to turn and face her. He then thought better and did not. He returned to brushing the horse. "Samuel, you turn around and face me! You tell me why I have to get ready to mourn a second man in my life. You tell me what I'm supposed to tell our children!" His turn was powerful and deliberate; he faced her, "Our children, Laura? It wasn't that long ago you told me in no uncertain terms they were your children and I was a bad influence. You share them with me only when it suits you. They are our children if you think you can use them to your advantage." "Is that why you're doing this? To punish me for what I said?" "Laura, please. Do you really think that little of me? I gave the man my word. I promised him I would avenge him if this happened." "You promised? You promised? You also promised my husband you would look after us. I know Wiggins was your friend, but he is cold and dead in the ground. There is nothing you can do that will change that." Sam's brows furrowed, "And how is that different from William, your husband? Is he not also cold and dead in the ground?" Laura stepped forward and took his free hand. She placed his hand on her chest, between her breasts, "Does this feel like it's cold and dead? Do you not feel the love that surges through my body with every beat of my heart? Tell me what I have to do to keep you here? What must I do to change your mind?" Sam wondered, which was the higher calling; avenging a friend or being a father? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joseph R. Durika.

But Sol, it ain't haunted like you thought, Marty argued cautiously. It wasn't a good idea to get Sol too angry. "We've tried everything, séances, Ouija boards, mediums - everything. This place is just an old, empty house. A creepy, old house." Sol shook his head, disregarding Marty's words, and started up the tall staircase to the second floor. "It just has to seem like a haunted house," he said. "We'll keep the crowds coming if it seems like a haunted house. People pay good money to spend the night in a haunted mansion." Marty followed him, shaking his head. "After that last paranormal research group came through and found nothing, we ain't been getting the crowds like we used to," he pointed out. "People look on the Internet for everything. All they have to do is research the house and they'll see we've been investigated by three different groups. They ain't gonna pay top dollar to stay in the state's most haunted house if it ain't got no ghosts." Sol stopped at the top of the stairs and waited for Marty. "Then all we need is a ghost," he said. Marty shook his head and put his hand on his partner's shoulder. "Sol, we've been at this for three years," he replied. "The balloon payment is coming up in three months. We ain't got the capital. We gotta let go of this place before we lose everything." Shoving Marty's arm off his shoulder, Sol paced angrily down the hallway. "Don't you get it, Marty?" he growled, his teeth clenched. "I'm going to lose everything if this place doesn't pan out. I sunk everything I owned into this place. I don't have any reserves. I don't have anything to turn to. This place has to work out." 1. Language: English. Narrator: Erin Spencer.

It actually helped that the hundreds of shoppers had vanished. That meant they couldn't be shot by accident while that gang of goons chased us with their handguns.Of course, it was now more obvious exactly where we were.I probably had it worst - dressed in pink like a stage performer. A long dress down to my ankles, with extra wide ruffles wasn't the best thing to either run or hide in.Yes, I left the high heels some aisles behind me. Fashion can't replace staying alive.What they were after, besides me and my brother, was anyone's guess.Right now, I was more concerned about myself. As my brother had disappeared.And I counted at least four goons closing in where I was hidden.Well, not hidden exactly. They just couldn't get a good shot at me.Yes, that's called pinned down... Excerpt:I spotted the first one before Finn could. Charcoal gray overalls, right hand in the front pocket. No name tag or stencil. Wearing sunglasses indoors. Shaved head."Finn - to your right, 10 o'clock."He only glanced that direction, keeping his face straight ahead. "Got him."With a fast long-armed motion, he snagged a shampoo bottle from eye level and turned to face me. He held it up between us as if getting my opinion of the brand or price."Another to your 5 o'clock, and two aisle over at about your 7.""You've got another on your own 7. So that makes four.""But they all seem to have stopped."He turned back to his right to put the bottle back, then held out is arm again for me to take it and keep moving."Nothing behind us. So they are only tracking, not herding. A bit distinctive outfits, even though no one would particuarly notice them."I nodded. "And what's with all of them having bald heads?""Same bad hairdresser."I had to smile at that joke. "What's your suggestion?""Just keep going for now. These aisles are long. And we're heading for the women's clothing, lingerie. At least you and I can stop and have a discussion - but they'll be out in the open and standing out like sore thumbs in all that pastel lace."So that's what we did.And the result was that those beefy guys had to spread out to take what cover they could without looking like fetishers.Which meant as long as I was acting the part of teasing Finn with unmentionables, we could stay relatively safe. But it also meant that anyone else in the commissary shopping near us would be at risk.We were basically surrounded.Then I saw them pull out their guns and adopt their take-no-prisoners stances.- - - -A distraction helped. The lights went bright, then dimmed to nothing, and then resumed.Since there was still a good amount of afternoon sunlight streaming in on the side windows, it didn't get completely dark. But the split- second of them looking away gave us time to dive beneath a rack of swimsuits.But the commissary got real quiet at that point.All the noise of the crowd disappeared. The shoppers had vanished.The only sound remaining was the creaking soles of the goon's soft-soled boots on the polished tile floor.Coming toward where we were crouched - not too far from where they'd seen us earlier.Finn caught my eye with a signal and also disappeared from view...Scroll Up and Get Your Copy Now.
