Summary
"In 1944, sixty French-speaking Canadians were sent to occupied France as part of the Special Operations Executive (SOE). Their tasks included training resistance fighters, sabotaging German transport trains, and assassinating Nazi officers. Of the sixty who parachuted into occupied France, only fifteen survived. The Obit Man is the story of one of those men." - back cover

"This is Second World War stuff that has stayed secret, and now raises issues as topical as the conflicts of today. A wonderfully original story...this book, thinly disguised as fiction, sets forth hard questions about real war crimes, with a surprise twist at the end." - William Stevenson (back cover)
