One man held the key to the operation called by the codeword – “Torch” – the huge allied invasion of North Africa. His name was Pete Macrory, a Canadian in the Royal Engineers. And nobody trusted him an inch.
To find out why, and what made Pete tick in his own peculiar way, you had to go back to General Wolfe’s attack on Quebec in 1759 when a distant ancestor of Pete’s, young Jock Macrory, was nearly scalped.
A strange mixture but it makes a great war picture story.
