Reviews

"No Bridges Blown is a World War Two biography with a recency I don't remember reading elsewhere, and certainly not about the OSS efforts in occupied France. . . . I recommend it as a book that ought to be a classic of wartime literature. I recommend it to anyone who wants to understand the personal implications of war, the stress of life in occupied territory, some of the roots of American special operations forces, or just wants a fascinating and beautifully written explanation of a tiny piece of the fight in France."--Russell Worth Parker, Lieutenant Colonel, US Marine Corps
Quietly written yet intensely interesting--Publishers Weekly
A readable and interesting reconstruction of the past!--Library Journal
