    Summary
    "In his latest collection, Daring Missions of World War II, author and historian William Breuer brings to light largely unknown stories of behind-the-scenes bravery and covert activities that helped the Allies win critical victories both on the ground and in the air. Here are more than seventy tales of espionage, sabotage, and derring-do, including thrilling accounts of "impossible" rescues, ingenious secret networks, and high-stakes U.S. Ranger missions within enemy territory."--Jacket.
