A scion of one of France's most storied families, Robert de La Rochefoucauld was raised in magnificent châteaux and educated in Europe's finest schools. When the Nazis invaded and imprisoned his father, La Rochefoucauld escaped to England and learned the saboteur's art from the officers of Churchill's "Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare." He then returned to France, organized resistance cells, blew up munitions factories, and executed Nazi officers. In this enthralling history Paul Kix recounts La Rochefoucauld's adventures, from stealing a Nazi limo and disguising himself in a nun's habit to jumping from a moving truck on the way to his execution.
