In August 1941, a 24-year-old Belgian woman walked into the British consulate in Bilbao, neutral Spain, and demanded to see the consul. She presented him with a British soldier she had smuggled all the way from Brussels, through occupied France and over the Pyrenees. It is a journey that Andrée de Jongh—codenamed "Little Cyclone"—will make countless times thereafter, at unthinkable danger to her own life. Recalled today for his shocking 1979 death in an IRA bombing, Airey Neave served as an intelligence agent for MI9 in World War II, and he brings his insider knowledge of de Jongh's "Comet Line" to this tense yet inspiring story of resistance.
