I was trained to be a spy : a true life story / by Helias Doundoulakis
After being transformed into a skilled "spy", the author was sent back to Greece undercover. Along with a Greek naval intelligence officer, he set up a communications cell in Salonica whereby daily coded messages to OSS (Office of Strategic Services) Headquarters in Cairo were sent. The author recounts his personal experiences with the Cretan Resistance, his escape from Crete through the mountains, the evacuation by an English torpedo boat, his OSS training, the return mission to Greece, as well as recalling the near-capture encounters with the Gestapo and Greek police, and his final return to the United States.
