Summary

Branded a coward in WWII, Lieutenant Guy Barrington was dishonourably discharged from the British Army. To prove himself innocent of the charge, he joined Churchill's Scallywags -- the secret civilian suicide squads whose purpose was to destabilize Nazi occupation of England by way of dirty tricks and sabotage. Their expected lifespan: 12 days! This is a harrowing, fact-based story of hate, horror, exemplary courage and the strange workings of the supernatural.
