Game of Spies: The Secret Agent, the Traitor and the Nazi


The Royal Pavilion is delighted to welcome acclaimed author Paddy Ashdown to present and discuss his new book in the palace’s magnificent Music Room, followed by a complimentary drink and book signing in the Banqueting Room.

Paddy Ashdown has had a varied and action-packed career – and his latest book is a gripping account of a never-before-told slice of French history that reveals a lethal spy triangle in 1940’s Bordeaux. Game of Spies tells the story of France’s greatest betrayal by aristocratic and right-wing Resistance leader André Grandclément, and the role of an SOE agent caught up in treachery, bed-hopping and executions.

Hosted by the University of Sussex Resistance Studies Network in partnership with City Books

and The Secret WW2 Learning Network


Doors open at 18.30pm, talk 19.00-20.30pm in the Music Room, book signing and complimentary drink 20.30-21.30pm in the Banqueting Room. £15.50, members £14 (includes a glass of white wine/soft drink in the Banqueting Room)
