A new branch of the secret services, MI9, was created in 1939 with the brief of providing escape and evasion support to captured servicemen. This book describes its ingenious mapping programme, which produced charts on silk, rayon and tissue and concealed them in everyday items such as records, playing cards and Monopoly boards. With many photographs and illustrations this blend of cartographic and military history also examines the escape networks across Europe and MI9's communications with the PoW camps.
