SPECIAL OPERATIONS EXECUTIVE, 1940-1946:
SUBVERSION AND SABOTAGE DURING WORLD WAR II
Series One: SOE Operations in Western Europe

Part 3: Germany, 1936-1945
(Public Record Office Class HS 6/617-722)

  • These records provide important information on Operation Foxley, the plot to kill Hitler.
  • There are harrowing intelligence reports on the concentration camps discovered by SOE agents. The files provide significant evidence on the atrocities at Auschwitz, Dachau, Oranienburg and Buchenwald.
  • Operation Vivacious describes the sabotage of a V2 factory.
  • Operations Frilford, Coland and Clint show how sabotage was used to disrupt German railway lines and communications.
  • There are also good examples of black propaganda produced by SOE defaming Axis leaders, a plot to kill Himmler, and accounts of co-operation by Germans to overthrow the Third Reich.
