'Xavier' was Colonel Richard Heslop's field name in occupied France during the Second World War, where he skilfully ran the SOE 'Marksman' network in the Haute-Savoie/Ain area. Detailing his important contribution to Allied espionage in France, this account of his activities describes how he ingeniously orchestrated resistance groups and ruthlessly sabotaged German operations from late 1942 through to the invasion in 1944.
