Game of Spies
About the event
Paddy Ashdown returns to Buxton with a riveting three-way spy story set in occupied France, as he details France’s greatest betrayal by aristocratic and right-wing Resistance leader Andre Grandclement.
The story centres on three men: one British, one French and one German and the duel they fought out in an atmosphere of collaboration, betrayal and assassination, in which comrades sold fellow comrades, Allied agents and downed pilots to the Germans, as casually as they would a bottle of wine. It is a story of SOE, treachery, bed-hopping and executions in the city labelled ‘la plus collaboratrice’ in the whole of France.
