Synopsis

You Wouldn't Want to be a Secret Agent During World War II by John Malam

As a French refugee in the Second World War, you find hope in the Special Operations Executive in Britain. Your task? You must 'set Europe ablaze' by disrupting the Germans as much as possible. You must learn to fight and survive in your work as a secret agent, using an arsenal of gadgets such as explosive rats and noiseless guns. You Wouldn't Want To Be is a constantly-growing library of exciting titles which transport the reader to the grisliest times and places in history. The first-person narrative approach puts the reader in the shoes of some of the most unfortunate people ever to have lived. Humorous cartoon-style illustrations bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events.
