Carmel Offie: Short and Sweet

https://anchor.fm/dashboard/episode/e139jkn

Carmel Offie is one of history’s tragically overlooked characters — someone who worked with superhuman effort and questionable ethics to protect a country that would, in turn, destroy him out of convenience.

Described by many as short and ugly, Offie still managed to charm everyone he met and curry favor with everyone from political leaders to Army generals. He managed the logistics for several complicated shadow operations in Europe while managing personal smuggling operations via his access to military infrastructure.
