Men and women training to serve during World War II in the Special Operations Executive (SOE) were quickly made to forget all thoughts about Queensberry rules and so-called 'gentlemanly' warfare. Many of these carefully selected trainees (or students, as SOE officers called them) were taught a vast range of sabotage techniques and bizarre methods of killing, some using knives, guns and 'booby-trap' devices made by SOE's own talented teams of scientists and technicians. Some of these students also learned about waging war through disseminating black propaganda that would sap the enemy's will to fight. All the SOE agents serving in the field, in their clandestine struggle against Nazi Germany or Japan's militarist regime, were also thoroughly trained in how best to advise, arm and otherwise aid members of the Resistance movements in the enemy-occupied countries.
