Aristocrat turned Commando: A Biography of a WWII French Resistance Fighter

Author Paul Kix will discuss his new book, The Saboteur, a true story about a French aristocrat who became a daring commando in WWII. In the tradition of Agent Zigzag comes this breathtaking biography, as fast-paced and emotionally intuitive as the very best spy thrillers, which illuminates an unsung hero of the French Resistance during World War II—Robert de La Rochefoucald, an aristocrat turned anti-Nazi saboteur—and his daring exploits as a résistant trained by Britain’s Special Operations Executive.

“Chilling and powerful… This is first-class adventure writing, which, coupled with a true-life narrative of danger and intrigue, adds up to all-night reading."
