The Next Moon
A Special Operations Executive Agent with the French Resistance, 1940-1945
André Hue was something of a daredevil. By the age of twenty the Anglo-Frenchman had survived shipwreck and years undercover in France, sabotaging German supply lines. Returning to Britain, he was recruited by SOE to parachute behind enemy lines on 5 June 1944, to unite resistance forces in Brittany and paralyze local German troops during the Allied invasion. Though Hue's mission was fraught with difficulty he missed his landing site, his secret base camp became the site of a pitch battle and a band of Cossacks tried to hunt him down he knew that thousands of lives depended on his success or failure.
