Book Description

During the Second World War, the British Government established the Special Operations Executive (SOE) for the purpose of coordinating all acts of subversion and sabotage against the enemy overseas. Although the foreign operations of this branch of the British Secret Services are relatively well known, no previous study has assessed the organisation’s infrastructure. This innovative new volume represents the first time the entire property portfolio of a clandestine government agency has been published.
