  The Politics and Strategy of Clandestine War This collection of new essays on the Special Operations Executive (SOE) sets out to explore the ‘non-military’ aspects of British special operations in World War II.SOE was established in Summer 1940 to ‘set Europe ablaze’, by detonating popular resistance against Axis rule and nurturing ‘secret armies’. Based on srcinalarchive research, these essays highlight for the first time the numerous other areasin which SOE contributed to the war effort and show that it played a major role in supporting Britain’s political, economic, financial and humanitarian interestglobally.By situating SOE within the context of Britain’s broader political needs, theseessays also demonstrate the extent to which SOE came to epitomise the skills found in today’s secret service organisations. SOE showed itself capable of operating on a global scale and developing the necessary expertise, equipment and personnel to conduct activities across the whole spectrum of what we have come to know as‘covert operations’. By bringing SOE’s activities into sharper focus and exposingthe scale of its involvement in Britain’s wartime external relations, this book echoescurrent thinking on the place of the so-called ‘secret world’ in international politics. The Politics and Strategy of Clandestine War  will be of great interest to studentsof SOE, intelligence studies, World War II and military history in general.
