Rep. 1952. 262 pp., frontis., + 11 photo-plates. D.j., 22 x 14cm. Slight lean to front cover o/w Nr.FINE. The White Rabbit was one of the code names arranged to indicate the movements of Wing Commander Yeo-Thomas during his perilous missions to occupied France. This is the remarkable story of how Tommy spent the ‘phoney’ war in the ranks of the RAF, was commissioned after the fall of France and thereafter became a specialist in organizing Resistance. It tells how he was captured and treated by the Gestapo and how the long story of his suffering ended in his being one of the few British survivors of Buchenwald. He was subsequently awarded the George Cross and the Legion of Honour.
