I am completely biased in this respect, but I know that this is the time of year when folk are looking for Christmas presents. If you know someone who is into Grand Prix racing, or the secret world of the French Resistance, it is not a bad idea to take a look at The Grand Prix Saboteurs. This is the true story of how three top Grand Prix drivers from the 1920s and 1930s became British secret agents during World War II, two of them being trained in England and then flown to France out carry out work preparing sabotage networks for action after the D Day landings.
It took years of detailed research to dig up this story, much of the information still being classified until around 2006. It is a story that is filled with unexpected twists and turns. If you haven’t heard of it, take it from the author, it is a good book!!
