    Shadows in the Fog - The True Story of Major Suttill & the Prosper French Resistance Network
    Francis J Suttill
    History Press
    ISBN 978-0-7509-5591-1

    Francis Suttill has worked for many years establishing the fate of his father who was arrested by the SD in 1943, the collapse of the Prosper Network was a major setback for SOE in France and down the years many myths and theories of betrayal have grown up around it.

    The book analyses in almost forensic detail the fall of Prosper, the various legends around it and must be considered the best source on the topic.

    Well worth a read

    I'll follow your recommendation...the collapse of the Prosper network and the loss of so many agents has always required closure....any mention of Sir Claude?
