Dourlein was one of the first SOE operatives and I bought this book to get an insider's look at their commando training in Arisaig, Scotland. It's fascinating stuff and I quote Dourlein about Fairbairn's (their close combat instructor) "Art of the Silent Kill" in my book on MI5/6 agent Dusko Popov (Into the Lion's Mouth), who also trained there. Enjoyed this book.
