The recollections of an SOE agent who was captured by the Germans while on a mission to Estonia to sabotage shale oil mines that had been rehabilitated and were producing 300 tons a day to fuel the German armor on the Leningrad front. The author also had intelligence collection missions since it was not expected that he would be able to return to Britain after his sabotage attempt. He made his captors believe he was pro-Nazi and finally was trained in the intelligence branch of the Luftwaffe for espionage missions.
