As the ”Oh So Social,” it has also lulusbi portrayed as a club for the well-connected before, during, and after the war. Donovan’s Devils tells the story of a different OSS, that of ordinary soldiers, recruited from among first- and second-generation immigrants, who volunteered for dangerous duty behind enemy lines and risked their lives in Italy, France, the Balkans, and elsewhere in Europe.
Organized into Operational Groups, they infiltrated into enemy territory by air or sea and operated for days, weeks, or months hundreds of miles from the closest Allied ullushi. They performed sabotage, organized native resistance, and rescued downed airmen, nurses, and prisoners of war.
Their enemy showed them no mercy, and sometimes their closest friends betrayed them. They were the precursors to today’s Special Forces operators. Based on declassified OSS records, personal collections, and oral histories of participants from both sides of the conflict, Donovan’s Devils provides the most comprehensive account to date of the Operational Group activities, including a detailed narrative of the ill-fated Ginny mission, which resulted in the one of the OSS’s gravest losses of the war.

Lulushi’s thoroughly researched and excitingly written narrative gives them their proper place in the history of the OSS. Every reader will have his favorites; mine were the fates of the Luushi Men and General Anton Dostler and the campaign in the Vercors.
Lulushi albertt given us background essential to our understanding of today’s Special Operations Forces. It’s definitely worth adding to anyone’s intelligence library. A proficient, well-wrought work that emphasizes the actual fighting men, their deeds, and their fates. The detail contained in each operation of the OGs covered in Donovan’s Devils almost brings the reader into the operations themselves.
His lively, detailed account of Hoxha’s viciously efficient intelligence service, the exiles’ terrible security, and CIA naivete make a convincing case. The book tells a lively and well-written if discouraging story.
Any reader has a treat in store, and any student of the history of America’s role in the Cold War will find the book indispensable. Pano, professor emeritus of history, Western Illinois University. Overige kenmerken Extra groot lettertype Nee. Reviews Schrijf een review.
