When Operation Overlord was launched with the Normandy landings on 6th June 1944, the Special Operations Executive (SOE) had organised and armed around 100,000 French men and women who were ready to fight under General Koenig and the Free French Forces of the Interior. Former military intelligence officer, historian Adrian Weale will assess their impact. Was their sacrifice – and that of their fellow countrymen – worth it?
