I hemmelig tjeneste : Kompani Linge sett med britiske øyne by Arnfinn Moland( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in Norwegian and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like etter krigens slutt skrev William James Millar Mackenzie boken ?The Secret History of SOE? (Special Operations Executive). På grunn av hemmelighetsstempling av en del av materialet, kom boken først ut i 2000. I denne boken er de to kapitlene som omhandler norske forhold oversatt til norsk. Her kan man lese om SOE i Norge og om hvordan man like etter krigen vurderte innsatsen til SOE, Norwegian Section, også kalt Kompani Linge. Boken har også kapitler skrevet av Arnfinn Moland, et kapittel om de første årene sett fra norsk side, og et om den såkalte "Oslo-gjengen", kanskje det beste sabotørteamet i Europa under annen verdenskrig. De to eneste gjenlevende fra denne sabotasjegjengen, Gunnar Sønsteby og Birger Rasmussen, slipper til med sine kommentarer i boken. Illustrert med historiske fotografier i svart/hvitt
