Book Chapter
In some countries, resistance was spontaneous. In others, resistance was organized from outside, by secret services devoted to the task. In spite of the regulars' skepticism, resisters can usefully carry out four main tasks. They can provide intelligence of the enemy's doings, they can mount sabotage against manufacturing and communications facilities, they can help those opposed to an oppressive regime to escape and they can pass news round to each other about how the war is going, thus sustaining hope and morale. Morale factors are all-important in war, and resistance can aid morale mightily.
