Overview

This book examines British attempts to wage political warfare in the countries occupied by Germany in World War II. It describes the construction of political warfare machinery in London, showing how it was hampered by two difficulties: Whitehall politics and deep doubts about the war's purpose. The book then examines how political warfare operated as a semi-detached adjunct of diplomacy and how it engaged with the development of armed or otherwise active resistance in France, Denmark, Poland, and Yugoslavia. The book is also a study of British political imagination in a period when Britain perceived itself as a largely independent world power. The experience of near-defeat, however, left the decision-makers with dilemmas about rhetoric and ideology as well as strategy.
