Spies or soldiers, operatives of Allied nations fight against Nazi Germany.
Publisher's blurb: "In 1939 Hitler thrust war and all its horrors upon the nations of Western Europe. By May 1940 Great Britain alone stood defiant against Nazi aggression. Neville Chamberlain, all pretense of appeasement gone, addressed the War Cabinet: 'A new organization shall be established forthwith to co-ordinate all action, by way of subversion and sabotage...' and thus SOE was born.
"Early in 1941, President Roosevelt instructed William Donovan to develop a US intelligence service based on Britain's Secret Intelligence Service and SOE, a service that would soon come to be known as the OSS.
"Clandestine agents, both men and women, complete one of the most rigorous training programs of the war. Their style of fighting is unorthodox and ungentlemanly—and ruthless; it has to be, for agents often face terrible odds and are always outnumbered in their lonely battle against fascist tyranny. They strike at enemy communications, transportation, and supply targets as well as enemy morale to satisfy a directive originally given by Winston Churchill to the men and women of SOE to 'Set Europe ablaze!'
"Set Europe Ablaze is a complete role playing game which provides all the rules needed to play clandestine agents in World War II. Each player needs only a single D10 and the guidance of a game master to delve into exciting missions behind the lines of occupied Europe or within the borders of equally dangerous 'neutral' nations as they fight a secret war against the evil of fascist oppression."
