During the 1920s and 1930s, Frank Foley worked as Chief Passport Control Officer for the British Embassy in Berlin, a cover for his role as MI6 Head of Station there. As the Nazi administration increased its stranglehold over the country, Foley used his position to issue visas to countless Jews, allowing them to escape to Britain legally. This biography also recounts many of the escapes that Foley enabled.
Michael Smith has researched and vividly written one of the greatest unknown heroic stories of the Second World War.
