about this item

Operation Jedburgh was a clandestine operation in which personnel of the British Special Operations Executive, the US Office and Strategic Services, the Free French Intelligence and Operations Central Bureau and the Dutch and Belgian armies were dropped by parachute into ******-occupied Europe to conduct sabotage and guerrilla warfare, and to lead the local resistance forces.

The mission of the Dutch Jedburgh section was to arm and support resistance and gather intelligence. They played a key role in several major Allied operations, including Market Garden and the SAS operations Amherst and Keystone. This book tells, for the first time, the story of their recruitment and training and their courageous actions alongside the Dutch Resistance.
