Operation Autonomous: With S.O.E. In Wartime Romania

By Ivor Porter
Chatto & Windus, 1989
268 pp.

A welcome addition to the literature on the diplomacy and intelligence operations surrounding the efforts to bring about Romania's surrender and switch of sides in World War II. Porter's account covers both his own experiences (he was dropped into Romania in December 1943, captured and held prisoner, and remained in the country with the British political mission after the Romanian surrender in August 1944) and the larger issues of British, Soviet and Romanian policy.
