"Legião Portuguesa" and anti-nazi action!

Will be published in May my revised account about SOE activities in Portugal. The first edition was printed under the tittle "Traição a Salazar". The story line is about the role of "Legião Portuguesa" [LP] in the abortion of John Beevor's secret networks for clandestine and subversive guerrillas: in contradiction with its line of supporting left wing groups capable of direct action and black propaganda, SOE policy in this country involved contacts with that anti-communist armed militia of the Regime and that was reported by the PVDE, secret political police directed by Agostinho Lourenço. That was approved by the Foreign Office. Eurico Ribeiro Casais, LP man was mentioned in SOE telegrams I quote as «our friend».
