During World War II, training in covert operation was vital preparation for the “ungentlemanly warfare” waged by the Special Operations Executive (SOE) against Hitler’s Germany.
We will examine the training syllabus used at SOE’s Special Training Schools (STSs) instructing agents on how to wreak maximum havoc in occupied Europe. From burglary, close combat, and silent killing, to utilizing propaganda, surveillance, and disguise – we will delve into the files of the British National Archives to understand what really happened.
