|Hue, André / Southby-Tailyour, Ewen. The Next Moon: The remarkable true story of a British agent behind the lines in wartime France. Foreword by Professor M.R.D. Foot. London, Viking / Penguin Group, 2004. 16,5 cm x 24,5 cm. XXVIII, 320 pages, 38 illustrations, 3 maps. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjacket in protective Mylar. This now out-of-print copy is in very good condition with only minor signs of external wear.
Based on notes that Hue made when he returned to England, ‘The Next Moon’ offers a uniquely vivid and exciting portrait of SOE and Resistance activity: the night drops, the radio contact with London, the brutality of the occupying regime. But it is the personal stories that shine through. We learn of the Pondard family whose farm was destroyed but who never waivered in their support; of Lieutenant Marienne of the French SAS who had dropped into France with Hue and was executed in cold blodd; of Monsieur Legrand, the local miller, who was able to travel the countryside at will and thus provide invaluable information. And above all, of André Hue himself, who after the war was to receive the highest possible decorations from both the British and French governments. (Source: Dustjacket flap)
