Durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial no solo acontecieron grandes batallas protagonizadas por los ejércitos aliados y del Eje, sino que también hubo un espacio reservado para otra forma de combatir, para los engaños en los que primó el ingenio, para las guerrillas en territorio hostil, en definitiva, para las denominadas operaciones especiales. Esta obra, escrita con una combinación de rigurosidad y amenidad, permitirá al lector adentrarse en los grandes hitos bélicos de aquellos hombres que en la sombra y tras las líneas enemigas en Europa, África o el Pacífico, fueron capaces de cambiar el curso del conflicto que marcó a fuego el pasado siglo XX. Una auténtica visión de la guerra total.

The most notorious, and most contentious, cavalry charge in history still remains an enigma. Though numerous books have been written about the charge, all claiming to reveal the truth or to understand the reason why; exactly what happened at Balaklava on 25 October 1854 continues to be fiercely debated. Voices from the Past, The Charge of the Light Brigade relives that fateful day not through the opinions of such historians but from the words of those that were there. This is the story of the charge told by the soldiers of both sides, in the most detailed description of the Battle of Balaklava yet written. Gallop with the light dragoons and lancers into the mouths of the Russian cannon as the shells and cannonballs decimate their ranks. Read of the desperate efforts to return down the Valley of Death as the enemy pressed around the remnants of the Light Brigade, and of the nine Victoria Crosses won that day. Possibly more significant are the accusations and counter-arguments that followed the loss of the Light Brigade. Just who was responsible for that terrible blunder? The leading figures all defended their own positions, leading to presentations in Parliament and legal action. Yet one of those senior figures made an astonishing admission immediately after the battle, only to change his story when the charge became headline news. Just who was it that made the fatal error that cost the British Army its Light Brigade?"

The remarkable true story of SOE heroine Elaine Madden, told for the first timeAfter a tragic childhood among the Great War cemeteries of Flanders fields, a troubled young woman searches for love and meaning in war-ravaged Europe. Elaine Madden's quest takes her from occupied Belgium through the chaos of Dunkirk, where she flees disguised as a British soldier, into the London Blitz, where she finally begins to discover herself. Recruited to T Section of the Special Operations Executive (SOE) as a "fast courier," she is parachuted back to the country of her birth to undertake a top secret political mission and help speed its liberation from Nazi oppression. Elaine Madden never claimed to be a heroine, but her story proves otherwise. Its centerpiece—war service as one of only two women SOE agents parachuted into enemy-occupied Belgium—is just one episode in an extraordinary real-life drama of highs and lows, love, loss, and betrayal. Relayed to the author in the final years of her life, Elaine's true story of courage and humor in testing times is more intriguing, more compelling than fiction.
