Game of Spies
With Paddy Ashdown
30 March 2017
The former leader of the Liberal Democrats, marine and intelligence officer, discusses his latest book, a riveting three way spy story set in occupied France.
Game of Spies is about the lethal spy triangle that existed between 1942 and 1944 in Bordeaux and centres on three men: one British, one French and one German and the duel they fought out in an atmosphere of collaboration, betrayal and assassination, in which comrades sold fellow comrades, Allied agents and downed pilots to the Germans, as casually as they would a bottle of wine. It is a story of SOE, treachery, bed-hopping and executions in the city labelled 'la plus collaboratrice’ in the whole of France.
