Behind enemy lines

Gender, passing and the Special Operations Executive in the Second World War

Juliette Pattinson

Published by Manchester University Press

Cultural History of Modern War MUP

  • An original contribution to the literature on gender and war, which to date has focused upon women in the British auxiliary services A significant contribution to the existing literature on the SOE, which, to date, has been anecdotal, descriptive and gender-blind Breaks new ground in this field in its extensive use of a wealth of primary sources in order to illustrate how the war impacted differently upon men and women
  • It adopts a uniquely interdisciplinary approach, using both oral and written personal testimony, official records, film and newspapers The timeliness of this book is a key strength
  • There has been a resurgence of interest in texts about war recently and the SOE in particular has been a popular topic with documentary makers, authors and journalists
