I have just discovered that Xan Fielding’s books about his time in SOE and wartime Crete are to be republished by Paul Dry Books and will be available, if Amazon is to be believed, in June 2013.
Hide and Seek: The Story of a War-Time Agent
is available for pre-order now at £9.95 on Amazon – pre-order through the link above.
The Stronghold: The Four Seasons in the White Mountains of Crete
is also available for pre-order now at £9.95 on Amazon – pre-order through the link above.
These books are very difficult to get hold of and The Stronghold in particular is quite rare and sells for between £200-£500 on eBay.
Paul Dry Books link is here.
Don’t forget that you can also pre-order the third volume of Paddy’s trilogy,The Broken Road: From the Iron Gates to Mount Athos
ευχαριστώ πολύ Thanks so much!
I think it is Dan!
Good news indeed! Now if only Artemis Cooper’s book on life in wartime Cairo would be reprinted….978-0140247817
You can also pre-order the books from a nice independent bookshop just as PLF’s favourite (and perhaps Xan Fielding’s as well), Heywood Hill.
Finally! This has made my week.
I read them both in the British Library, and they are well worth it.
