SCHOLARS OF MAYHEM My Father's Secret War in Nazi-Occupied France

by | Read by Robert Fass

History • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Robert Fass's crisp performance puts listeners right in the middle of this fascinating story of Jean Claude Guiet, an unassuming professor with a secret past. During WWII, the U.S. military sought special operatives who could infiltrate the enemy and coordinate with the Resistance. Jean Claude, an American who was fluent in French, fit the bill and served in the British predecessor to the CIA. The tension in the audiobook is like that of a great spy novel, especially when Jean Claude parachutes into enemy territory and must keep in contact through archaic means, avoiding ever-present enemy troops. The titular "mayhem" is real; the missions sought to create havoc. Listeners who are looking for insight into the inner workings of the Allies during WWII should prioritize this audiobook.
