Audacious Raids of World War Two
September 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Speaker: Juliette Desplat, Head of Modern Overseas, Intelligence and Security Records at The National Archives
Juliette Desplat discusses Operations Grouse, Freshman, Swallow and Gunnerside, carried out by SOE and the Norwegian Resistance in Norway in 1942-1943. These incredibly audacious missions wrecked Nazi plans for an atom bomb and were described by the commander of German troops in Norway as ‘the most splendid coup seen this war.’
