Here is the untold story of the secret patrols that used the status of the Home Guard as a cover for their real activities. A veritable warren of holes, tunnels and burrows were the HQs for their work of discreet observation and coded communication. Their network would have been invaluable in the event of an invasion, when their life expectancy was estimated as two weeks. This book includes the personal reminiscenses of some of the heroic men and reveals, for the first time, details of their amazing life in hideouts.
