Praise

“A lively account …. the work sheds lights on how British intelligence perilously worked with the French.” — Library Journal

“Charles Glass….uses his considerable research and storytelling skills to uncover the little-known story of SOE (Special Operations Executive) agents George and John Starr….While They Fought Alone may read like a thriller, the enormous toll that the war took on George and John Starr is palpable. As we approach the 75th anniversary of D-Day in 2019, this book is a timely reminder of what it took to defeat tyranny.” — Bookpage

“Glass’s vividly written work adds an important chapter to the story of the Resistance.” – Publishers Weekly

“A fresh, detailed take on the patriotic legend of anti-Nazi insurgency….A well-rendered historical account emphasizing the moral complexities of unorthodox warfare.” — Kirkus

“Highly detailed and fast-paced, Charles Glass’s They Fought Alone is a must-read for those whose passion is the Resistance literature of World War II.” —Alan Furst, author of A Hero of France
 
“A fascinating, gripping account of two controversial secret agents, brothers who maneuvered with great cunning and managed to survive behind the lines in Nazi occupied France.” —Alex Kershaw, author of Avenue of Spies and The Liberator
