THE STORY OF PAT O'LEARY
BY VINCENT BROME

Which admirably traces the atmosphere of this time of daily danger and urgency experienced by men in the shadows, men of the Resistance and those who came from England in enemy land, full of traps.

Pat O'Leary (Dr Albert Marie Guerisse) British MI 9 agent, created an escape network throughout France which saved many British and American pilots shot down in France, escapees and resistance fighters. He was arrested by the Gestapo and deported to the Mathausen and Dachau camps.
The organization's radio station was based in Montauban where Pat O'Leary visited several times. Tom Groome, the radio, was arrested by the Gestapo with the Cheramys who were lodging him.

It is possible that my father Georges, from whom I have this book, knew him, but I am not sure. However, what I do know is that my father had met Françoise Dissart in Toulouse.

(This second-hand book can be found on dedicated sites, but there are only a few copies)

MEMORIES OF A SECRET AGENT OF FREE FRANCE

MEMORIES OF A SECRET AGENT OF LIBRE FRANCE

BY COLONEL REMY

Summary: "Le Refus is the first volume of Colonel Rémy's famous series, Mémoires d'un agent secret de la France Libre, the best-known and most complete testimony published on" shadow fighters. " that I had begun my reading, nothing existed any more except her. I saw the birth, groping, growing, developing and living, with its successes and its catastrophes, its sufferings, its anguishes and its agonies, the astonishing adventure of a man whom nothing intended for the profession of secret agent. (...) Having spent a sleepless night on these pages, I say the following morning, as I repeat here: it is magnificent. "

Joséphine BAKER

Joséphine BAKER worked as a secret agent of Free France, then in the Free French Air Forces.
This book tells of his early involvement in the Resistance and in the intelligence of Free France, a story little known because eclipsed by his career as a star.

My father Georges had met her once in Paris, when she was with Jo Bouillon, then another time in Milandes in the Dordogne.
