    DescriptionSecurity and Special Operations offers the first comprehensive history of the Security Section of the Special Operations Executive and its relationship with MI5 during the Second World War. The book makes extensive use of recently declassified files in order to examine the development of liaison between the two organizations. It explores SOE's involvement with MI5's double cross operations and offers a fresh perspective on both the 'Englandspiel' disaster in Holland and the case of the notorious agent Henri Dericourt.

    Review quote
    'Security and Special Operations is a significant addition to the burgeoning literature of the history of the Special Operations Executive. Using recently declassified files from MI5 and SOE documents at the National Archives, Christopher Murphy is able to shed much new light on the troubled relationship between SOE, MI5 and SIS (MI6) during the Second World War, particularly over security issues.' - Richard Thurlow, University of Sheffield, UK
