The British Spy Manual : The Authentic Special Operations Executive (SOE) Guide for WWII

£14.99

Product description

Published in 2014 by Arum Press Ltd. This is a reproduction of an historical document from the archives of the Imperial War Museum. Apart from a few additions this is the reproduction of two volumes in their entirety.

Imagine sitting behind a desk, in a classroom, miles from anywhere in the English countryside, alongside dozens of fellow students, dreaming of being parachuted into Occupied France to undertake daring missions against Hitler's forces. What were you taught? What text books did they give you, and what homework and exams were you expected to pass in order to make the grade? We now publish the classroom dossier that all secret agents being trained for missions against the Axis forces in the Second World War were supplied with and expected to implement when on service.

Full of colourful and imaginative drawings, photographs and diagrams the two-volume set represents a unique piece of British military history at your finger tips. From techniques in camouflage, to setting up communications, concealing weapons caches and constructing booby traps - this is the original text book our heroes learned, to ply their trade to deadly effect.

This book is in excellent condition throughout.
