Merry Christmas from We Have Ways of Making You Talk. Over the next 12 days Al and James are reading extracts from some of their favourite books about the Second World War. Today James is reading an extract from Anthony Cotterell’s war reporting.
Britain was the only country to prepare a resistance movement before it was needed. Andrew Chatterton joins Al and James to discuss the history of the auxiliary units, men who would operate behind the lines should the Nazis invade Britain.
