The Bedford Triangle


This is a fascinating book, made possible through the US freedom of information legislation and contributions from enthusiasts, researchers, and members of the reunion groups of those who served in undercover operations during WWII. This is not the full story because an amount of information in British archives is still sealed and may be for decades yet. However, this is a well researched work that sheds fresh light on an important and necessarily shadowy part of US and British activities behind enemy lines. There are sixteen pages of photographic plates in black and white, including some very rare and previously unpublished images. The book takes its name from the concentration of US and British covert operations and intelligence units in the County of Bedfordshire, although there were locations throughout the British Isles used by OSS, SOE, SIS and BCCS
