Overview


They Also Serve is a fascinating account of one woman's experiences during World War II within the Special Operations Executive and the WRNS. At the Scandinavian Section of the SOE, Dorothy Baden-Powell was engaged in sending Norwegian saboteurs into occupied Norway and debriefing them on their return to London. After spending a year and a half with the SOE, at the age of 21, she was given an assignment in the WRNS to try to break a ring of enemy spies. During her assignment, she endured the privations of life on the lower deck, assaults by drunken sailors ashore, the unwelcome scrutiny of a particularly unpleasant WRNS Superintendent, and a trumped-up charge and subsequent court-martial. This book is a remarkable story of bravery and dedication and, moreover, is a tribute to all those men and women who served their country during the Second World War.
