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

  • Now available in paperback for the first time, this book looks at the experiences of the undercover agents of the Special Operations Executive 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 Adopts a uniquely interdisciplinary approach, using both oral and written personal testimony, official records, film and newspapers
