The men in this book are heroes in the truest sense. They came from many nations and from all kinds of backgrounds. Some, like Tommy Macpherson, were marked out for greatness from the very beginning. A blue-blooded Oxford graduate, trained in hand-to-hand combat, safe blowing, lock breaking and shooting – it’s really no wonder he saw the chance to put his skills into practice and grabbed it with both hands. Others, like the indomitable Andy Coogan, were born in abject poverty, but brought such extraordinary grit and determination to the table that there really was no keeping them down. For him, just surviving the war was the best form of escape. Their stories have everything: drama, action, subterfuge and triumph over adversity. Behind Enemy Lines explores the best of these. It begins with the unusual and little known tale of Pan Am Clipper, Boeing 314; the first commercial airliner to complete a round the world flight, going in the wrong direction, and under constant threat of attack.
