Seem to have switched some what from WW1 to WW2 at the moment, and have been re reading books relating to SOE. However, I just finished reading Francis Suttill's book "Shadows in the Fog", and I found it interesting although confusing because of the large number of people involved as well as the number of circuits and sub circuits. It appears to be largely an attempted vindication of his father's work during the war, although I can't for the life of me see why it should be necessary. In fact, I ended up feeling sorry for Norman Gilbert. In the book, Suttill suggests that somehow the official history (which I have ordered) does not credit his father with his achievements, and in fact may have been critical of his management of the circuit. He also makes the point that for some reason his father is not commemorated on the local memorial but is mentioned on one in Holland.Why would that have been done? Was S.O.E. really worth while? After what I have most recently been reading, I am starting to feel that it wasn't. Some of the participants, especially some of those in control in London, seem to have been totally incompetent. Thanks, Hazel C.
