Summary
Benjamin Jones' Eisenhower's Guerillas is the first book to show in detail how the Jedburghs-whose heroism and exploits have been widely celebrated-and the maquis worked together. Underscoring the critical and often overlooked role that irregular warfare played in Allied operations on the Continent, it tells the story of the battle for and liberation of France and the complexities that threatened to undermine the operation before it even began
