Product description


This book follows the build-up of the Danish Section with the Special Operations Executive (SOE), the top-secret sabotage organisation, which was part of the resistance movement in World War II. On the basis of archives just accessible in London, it has finally been possible to describe the Danish Resistance Movement during the Second World War from an English point of view. From the beginning of 1940, the Special Operations Executive developed from an idea into a world-wide organisation of about 13,000 men and women of whom about 5,000 were active behind enemy lines. The intention was that the organisation should support the resistance movements in the occupied territories as part of Britain's struggle for survival against Hitler's Germany. Denmark, at first, was not too keen on resistance, and this book follows the laborious build-up of the Danish SOE Section from a few isolated acts of sabotage into a comprehensive resistance movement.
