SOE: An Outline History of the Special Operations Executive 1940 - 1946 - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 0712665854

[SR: 80913], Paperback, [EAN: 9780712665858], Pimlico, Pimlico, Book, [PU: Pimlico], 1999-06-03, Pimlico, Title: SOE Binding: Paperback Author: M R D Foot Publisher: PIMLICO, SOE The Special Operations Executive 1940- 1946 reads just as well now as it did when it was first published by the BBC in 1984 to coincide with a television series--not least because its author, M.R.D Foot, was appointed the official historian to the SOE just after World War Two and has had access to its entire archive. The SOE was hastily cobbled together in 1940 to wage subversive campaigns behind enemy lines, and by and large it made up the rules as it went along. It recruited where and when it could. As might be expected, the senior ranks generally came from the echelons of the public schools, the City, the business world and the armed services; but its agents were a bizarre mix of eccentrics and mavericks from all over the world--including North American newspaper editors, South American businessmen, Spanish smugglers, Abyssinian tribesmen, Norwegian mountaineers, schoolchildren, Dutch printers, Greek outlaws, Slovene peasants, Malayan rubber workers, Siamese noblemen, Naga hillmen, Polish and Czech railway guards and Chinese tycoons. All in all, however, SOE's total strength never totalled more than 10,000 men and 3,200 women. Often the training was crude and the operations were ill-thought out and as a result many failed. But that only serves to make those that succeeded against such long odds all the more impressive. Occasionally, such as its attack on the Norsk Hydro plant at Rjukan, SOE's operations were critical to the outcome of the war, but for the most part its successes owed more to the longevity of attrition rather than any immediate outcome. The SOE spent much time engaged in diversionary activity. It was said that each day Hitler spent at least half an hour considering Abwehr reports on SOE activities and that he was never entirely sure of their place in the overall framework of Allied plans. But perhaps the greatest success of the SOE was the way it managed to foster a mentality of resistance in all areas of Nazi occupation. Populations that might otherwise have settled for an easy life were galvanised into a permanent state of mini-rebellion, thereby ensuring that the occupying forces could never relax for a moment. Foot is the ideal guide to walk you through this outfit of which much has been spoken but little is known, sorting out the fact from the fiction but he still finding ample room for storytelling. Your perspective on World War Two will never be quite the same again after reading this. -- John Crace, 759190, Espionage, 758862, War & Espionage, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 4117771, Ireland, 271343, Britain & Ireland, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271480, Europe, 271489, Pre-500, 271488, Vikings, Dark Ages, Medieval Europe 501-1500, 271481, Renaissance, Reformation, Thirty Years War 1501-1750, 271482, Enlightenment, Revolution & Empire 1751-1900, 771758, Early 20th Century 1901-1913, 271486, World War I 1914-1918, 771760, Inter-war Period 1919-1938, 271485, Post-war Period, 1946-Present, 772160, The Crusades, 772158, Hundred Years' War, 771756, Reformation In Europe, 271417, Napoleonic Wars, 271408, Holocaust, 271649, Ancient Greece, 271343, Britain, 882476, France, 882480, Germany, 882498, Italy, 882492, Russia, 882486, Spain, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276564, Military Intelligence & Espionage, 271411, Military History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276579, Special & Elite Forces, 882510, Armed Forces, 271411, Military History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 772162, Cultural History, 772188, Local & Urban History, 772192, London, 271405, Multicultural History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 10959971, Battles & Campaigns, 10960041, Alamein, 10960051, Arnhem, 10960071, Battle for Berlin, 10960021, Battle of Britain, 10960031, Battle of the Atlantic, 10960111, Battle of the Bulge, 10960061, Burma, 10959991, D-Day Landings, 10960001, Dunkirk, 10960121, Hurtgen Forest, 10960171, Iwo Jima, 10960091, Kursk, 10960101, Monte Cassino, 10959981, Pearl Harbour, 10960011, Stalingrad, 10960081, Tunis, 10959961, World War II 1939-1945, 771718, World History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 10960961, Enigma Code, 10959961, World War II 1939-1945, 771718, World History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 10960881, Origins, 10959961, World War II 1939-1945, 771718, World History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 275870, Government & Politics, 275890, Civil Liberties & Political Activism, 496554, Countries & Regions, 496870, Economics, 275885, International Institutions, 275882, International Relations, 275901, Political Science & Ideology, 275915, Political Structure & Processes, 275941, Reference, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

SOE: An Outline History of the Special Operations Executive 1940 - 46 - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 0712665854

ID: 6659457

SOE, the Special Operations Executive, was a small, tough British secret service, a dirty tricks department, set up in July 1940. Recruited from remarkably diverse callings, the men and women who were members of this most secret agency in the Second World War lived in great and constant danger. Their job was to support and stimulate resistance behind enemy lines; their credentials fortitude, courage, immense patience and a devotion to freedom. The activity of the SOE was world-wide. Abyssinian tribesmen, French farmers, exiled Russian grandees, coolies, smugglers, printers, policemen, telephonists, tycoons, prostitutes, rubber workers, railwaymen, peasants from the Pyranees to the Balkans, even the regent of Siam - all had a part to play as saboteurs, informers, partisans or secret agents. In this engrossing and illuminating study, the eminent Second World War historian, M.R.D. Foot, sheds light on the heroism of individual SOE agents across the world and provides us with the definitive account of the Executive's crucial wartime work. With an introduction by David Stafford. england,europe,european,historical study and educational resources,history,intelligence and espionage,international and world politics,military,politics and government,politics and social sciences Politics & Social Sciences, Pimlico
