Abstract

The Special Operations Executive (SOE) set up by Winston Churchill in 1941 saw its role in France as helping the Resistance by recruiting and organising guerrilla fighters; supplying and training them, and then disrupting the invaders by any means necessary. Women trained alongside men, learning how to disappear into the background, how to operate a radio transmitter and how to kill a man with their bare hands.
