Ave atque Vale, Count Robert de La Rochefoucauld

This guy's life should be a movie.  The obit reads like a spy thriller novel.  Look at this intro:
Count Robert de La Rochefoucauld, who has died aged 88, escaped from Occupied France to join the Special Operations Executive (SOE); parachuted back on sabotage missions, he twice faced execution, only to escape on both occasions, once dressed as a Nazi guard.
