Our Para; Behind The Enemy Lines in France During 1944 With The SAS

by Roger Haycock

This is a very personal investigation into the events that lead to the death of James Downey, a member of the SAS who suffered fatal injuries in an avoidable accident with his comrades.

The personal nature of the investigation, clearly carried out by the author, makes for compelling reading about a little-known area of combat operations deep in France towards the end of the war.

So much is written about D-Day that these covert operations of the SAS supported by the Maquis and the RAF are often ignored.
