    I won this book from the Goodreads giveaway. Scholars of Mayhem tells the story of Jean Claude, an agent in France during WWII. I found it very educational. This is a part of history I knew little about. There are so few WWII veterans alive and I think it is important to hear their s...

    Jean Claude Guiet is a real-life super hero. How could a 20 year old American go behind enemy lines during the D-Day invasion and help defeat the Nazi occupation in France? He did and with no recognition, from the France or the United States. An astonishing story about the infancy of t...

    Fascinating story of a time when everyone seemed to want to give all. Incredible that women were not only included, but we're valued. I'm so glad Daniel was able to tell his father's story. ...

    I grew up next door to a couple, he was an American and she was French. Both were Jews. I knew he was originally in the OSS, and parachuted behind enemy lines into France, and that's where he met her. However as I got older and learned more history, there were still some questions that...

    We will never run out of amazing World War II stories. Ever. Daniel Guiet wrote an exciting, personal book about his father who (as a covert agent for Churchill?s ?Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare?) played a key role in helping organize the French Resistance. Although, in some w...
