In addition to their training in the arts of espionage and sabotage, SOE agents were introduced to a bewildering array of special equipment. This book reproduces, in facsimile form, the original catalogues prepared for agents in 1944, which contain illustrated details of field supplies and specialist kit such as underwater breathing apparatus and booby-trap mechanisms, as well as ingenious gadgets for clandestine operations such as explosive cigarettes and a tiny dagger in a pouch that could be sewn into clothing.
