The author, a professional psychologist, recounts his activities in the OSS first as a psychologist selecting spies, saboteurs, and resistance leaders and then as an agent himself, working with the French underground, the Maquis. In the British edition Morgan describes his enlistment in the army in 1942 and his assignment to the OSS. He was assigned to the staff of the British spy school at Pemberley. He was the only American on the staff which selected SOE agents for field training and later deployment. The author relates how tests were developed. After more than a year at Pemberley, Morgan volunteered for service in France and was then sent through the same school he had seen so many candidates go to. The British edition ends with the completion of his own training. In the American edition the author repeats all this and then goes on to describe his activities in occupied France as a resistance leader named “Marceau,” and his organization and training of a band of 550 guerrilla fighters.
