About the Authors
  • First published in 1966, twenty-one years after the close of the Second World War, this incisive study traces the history and the impact of the British Broadcasting Corporation's wartime broadcasts to Denmark. The BBC's European Service played a crucial role in relaying information to the occupied countries of Europe during the war, and the Danish Service was a particularly effective example. With a perspicacity possible only in retrospect, Mr Bennett uncovers the relationship between the stance taken by the BBC and the sometimes dramatic effects of the broadcasts in Denmark, particularly upon the Danish Resistance.
