After Hitler invaded Russia, Churchill secretly agreed to infiltrate Soviet agents into occupied Europe. Transported by convoy across the Arctic Ocean to Scotland, the 'Pickaxes' were given clothes, radio sets and fake documents before being flown from RAF Tempsford, an airfield in Bedfordshire, and parachuted behind enemy lines. Drawing on declassified records, this book exposes the distrust on both sides of the collaboration, and charts the human stories of the agents: their motives, loyalties and, for many, their demise.
