Churchill's White Rabbit

Edward Yeo-Thomas, GC was one of the bravest of the brave. A fluent French-speaker, he joined SOE and was parachuted into occupied France three times to work with the Resistance. Appalled by the lack of help the British were providing, he managed to arrange a five-minute meeting with Winston Churchill, during which he persuaded him to do more. On his third mission he was betrayed and captured by the Gestapo, he suffered horrendous torture (holding out just long enough to allow others to escape) before being sent to Buchenwald concentration camp, from where he eventually managed to escape, and made it back to Allied lines shortly before the end of the war. Sophie Jackson's biography reveals new information about how the torture affected him, the state of SOE-Resistance co-operation, Gestapo typhus experiments at Buchenwald and Yeo-Thomas's link with Ian Fleming.
