In addition to Britain's military intelligence services and the Special Operations Executive, a clandestine network of resistance was organized at the beginning of the Second World War. The various 'Auxiliary Units' of ordinary people trained in sabotage and supplied with caches of weapons and other equipment would only come into operation in the event of an invasion. This history draws on much unpublished material to reveal the details of this previously unheralded aspect of the wartime secret services.
