Special Forces in the Netherlands 1944-45

Availability: In stock

Author: Jelle Hooiveld

From early September 1944, Allied special forces teams were deployed in the occupied Netherlands to strengthen the armed resistance and gather intelligence. These so-called ‘Jedburgh’ groups, created by the British Special Operations Executive (SOE) and the U.S. Office of Strategic Services (OSS), supported several major Allied operations, including Market Garden and the often overlooked SAS operations Amherst and Keystone.

From behind enemy lines, the Jedburgh teams successfully assisted the Allied advance through the Netherlands. Dutch Courage tells, for the first time, the complete story of their recruitment and training and their courageous actions alongside the Dutch resistance.
