The mission of the men and women of the SOE was sabotage, subversion, and guerrilla Beaulieu, one of the homes of Churchill's secret spy schools warfare done behind enemy lines. They would be taught how to parachute into enemy territory, send coded radio messages, and steal top secret plans from the Nazis. Recruiting agents for the SOE was also top secret. Most of the new recruits didn’t even know they were being interviewed to be an agent. They were brought into normal looking offices and questioned like it was a job interview. Explosive training was a requirement for every recruit, because sabotage was a high priority for SOE agents. The agents needed to know how to place explosives so they could take out a bridge or destroy a railroad. The SOE had a huge victory in Norway when SOE agents destroyed the heavy water plant at Vemork. That ended the Nazi’s atomic bomb program.
