There have been very few books covering the Luftwaffe special units that were engaged in carrying agents and materials, to be dropped behind enemy lines. What may surprise many readers is the extent of these operations that stretched deep into the Soviet union and also into the Middle East and Afghanistan.

Where the extensive flights into Occupied Europe by British special forces and intelligence organizations were relatively short flights, often by single engine army cooperation aircraft, the Germans were often flying long distance. There is much in this new book that is fresh information not published before and it paints an absorbing picture of the battle between the German crews and their passengers against Soviet organizations including SMERSH.

The illustrations cover the range of aircraft and people involved, together with maps.
