A Schoolmaster’s War: Harry Ree – A British Agent in the French Resistance

£14.99

A school teacher at the start of the war, Harry Rée renounced his former pacifism with the fall of France in 1940. He was deployed into a secret branch of the British army and parachuted into central France in April 1943. Harry showed a particular talent for winning the confidence of local resisters, and guided them in a series of dramatic sabotage operations, before getting into a hand-to-hand fight with an armed German officer, from which he was lucky to escape. This might seem like a romantic story of heroism and derring-do, but Harry Rée’s own war writings, superbly edited and contextualised by his son, the philosopher Jonathan Rée, are far more nuanced, shot through with doubts, regrets, and grief.
