Anglo-American joint projects, 1940-1954

You are here: Secrecy, sabotage, and aiding the resistance: how Anglo-American co-operation shaped World War Two : Anglo-American joint projects, 1940-1954

These records focus on ways in which the United States and the United Kingdom worked together. Sabotage training took place at Camp X, Canada, where Britons and Americans learned methods to hinder the enemy and aid rebels. The trained men would be known as the Jedburghs, an elite group of covert operations soldiers whose motto was 'surprise, kill, and vanish'. This British co-operation with the US was only achieved through the negotiations which are also covered here.
