S.O.E. : An outline history of the special operations executive 1940 - 46 Paperback

Description

SOE, the Special Operations Executive, was a small, tough British secret service, a dirty tricks department established in July 1940 and encouraged by Churchill to `set Europe ablaze'.

Recruited from remarkably diverse callings, the men and women who were members of this most secret agency lived in great and constant danger.

Their job - as saboteurs, informers, partisans, couriers or secret agents - was to support and stimulate resistance behind enemy lines; their credentials fortitude, courage, immense patience and a devotion to freedom.

In this classic study M.R.D. Foot, sheds light on the heroism of individual SOE agents across the world and provides us with a spellbinding account of the Executive's crucial wartime work.

With an introduction by David Stafford.
