Summary
Following the outbreak of the Second World War, Guy Burgess, an officer in Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, convinced his superiors that a special school be opened to teach sabotage. Although his suggestion that it be called 'Guy Fawkes' School' was turned down, Brickendonbury Manor, near Hertford, was chosen and named 'Station XVII'. This book investigates the history of Brickendonbury, tells stories about some of its personnel, and assesses the successes and failures of some of the estimated 1200 saboteurs sent into occupied Europe
