Event description

Description

Talk

Women of the Special Operations Executive French Section underwent a rigorous training regime for work in enemy-occupied France during the Second World War. They were taught all manner of extraordinary things – from silent killing and close combat to mock interrogations and weapons training – in preparation for a life working behind the lines.

Dr Kate Vigurs is a Special Operations Executive historian with a special interest in the women of the SOE French Section.



We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit nationalarchives.gov.uk/whatson.
