Post subject: Special Operations Executive, air support.

Dedicated to all those who flew in support of SOE operations, especially those that never made it back.

Set Europe Alight!

When Michael Collins, the leader of the Irish Republican Army's guerrilla war and the future Prime Minister of the provisional Irish Free State, met with Churchill as War Minister to discuss the conditions of Ireland's new status, he reminded him that Churchill had hunted him night and day and put a price on his head. ''You are not the only one,'' Churchill replied, taking down the framed copy of the reward offered for his recapture by the Boers. ''At any rate it was a good price -- £5,000. Look at me -- 25 dead or alive.'' Churchill's dealings with Collins reinforced the lessons learned in Cuba and South Africa. It was the image of Boer resistance that lay behind the creation in 1940 of the Special Operations Executive (S.O.E.), intended to set Nazi-occupied Europe alight.
