About the Book

This is Harry Verlander’s story, one of five true-life recollections from the Second World War in Tales From The Special Forces Club.

The Special Forces Club is a fabled gentlemen’s club, based in the heart of London. It has a closely guarded secret: you have to be a genuine hero to be a member.

Harry had volunteered aged 16 in 1942. By 1944, he was parachuting into France on D-Day as part of the Jedburgh espionage teams. His main adventure, though, was in the jungles of Burma fighting the Japanese. This is his story.
