Recruited from remarkably diverse callings, the men and women who were members of this most secret agency lived in great and constant danger. Their job a€“ as saboteurs, informers, partisans, couriers or secret agents a€“ was to support and stimulate resistance behind enemy lines; their credentials fortitude, courage, immense patience and a devotion to freedom.
