The first and second dimensions were land and naval warfare- the third, air warfare, was introduced in World War I. The fourth dimension, Donovan said, was to organize the enemys rear areas to our advantage. The idea was to help people under German occupation and use them to achieve our objectives. It was what my group was heading for.John K. Singlaub was a young OSS officer when he parachuted into German-occupied France in 1944 to organize, train and lead a French Resistance unit. Later he was sent to China to train Vietnamese guerrillas to operate in Japanese-occupied Indochina.Special operations conducted by the OSS during World War II were the foundation on which the U.S.
