Product description


'Remarkable..not only an outstanding history, but a document without which there can be no proper understanding of SOE, of European reistance and, arguably, of the origins of that sense of European identity now manifested in the EU' - Alan Judd, Daily Telegraph

About the Author

Professor William Mackenzie spent three years writing the official war history of SOE for the Cabinet Office. He was later Professor of Government at the Universities of Manchester and Glasgow, and was Emeritus Professor of Politics at Glasgow until his death in 1996.
