Eight stories about the Special Operations Executive.
Narrated by Michael Bryant
4: The Hague, 1830 hrs, Friday 6 March, 1942.
German Security Police arrest a young, bespectacled Dutchman and trigger the greatest disaster in SOE's history. The Germans persuade the young man - SOE's first Dutch radio-operator - to transmit messages to London for them as if he were still free. So started the radio-game the Germans called the Englandspiel.
It was to last two years, cost the lives of 54 agents and leave the Dutch resistance impotent. Three of those who survived the Englandspiel tell their tragic story. And so does the SS Sturmbannfiihrer who arrested them.
Why did the 'game' last so long? How did it start in the first place? What went wrong?
