This thesis investigates the conduct of unconventional warfare as performed by one of the many teams of allied sabateurs parachuted deep behind enemy lines in German-occupied countries during World War II. The team studied as an example of this type of warfare was the Office of Strategic Services Norwegian Special Operations Group (O. S. S. NORSO Group) in Operation RYPE. Its mission was to disrupt German troop movements in Norway. Its effectivemess will be judged tactically and also in the strategic environment of the Allied war effort, of which it was a part.
