"The SOE was a British secret war department formed in 1940 to 'Set Europe Ablaze' by organizing and supplying the underground Resistance movements against the Nazis (and later the Japanese) in all occupied countries. It was one of several Secret Armies commanded from London by General Colin Gubbins, who was vice-chair of its council; the chair was the Jewish banker Charles Hambro . . . The French section of SOE . . . infiltrated thirty-nine women into France by plane, boat, submarine and parachute between May 1941 and July 1944."--Jewish Virtual Library
