Spooks - in from the cold at last...
I have been waiting for someone or group to make this App!! Not before time - is it now possible for a new generation to see places that once hid the most unbelievable characters and stories. Mr Spielberg could not possibly do justice in chronicling the heroic efforts of the brave, selfless, men and women who risked their lives behind enemy lines.
FABULOUS EFFORT. Thank you.
PS - as a WWII history enthusiast and amateur photographer - every time I visit London in future - I will be certain to make good use of this App.
Fascinating glimpse into a hidden past
Incredible to think those office blocks or flats you walk past every day played a crucial part in the Allied war effort. Really nicely put together app, with great research and interesting interviews. Hope even more locations will be added in future!
Great if it worked....
