‘Operation Columba’ Review: Carriers of Hope - WSJ
Consulting the British National Archives, Mr. Corera soon discovered an audacious program called Columba. Named after the genus to which pigeons belong, it was an intelligence-gathering service run by the British from April 1941 to September 1944. The idea was to place carrier pigeons in containers alongside questionnaires for information and to parachute them deep behind enemy lines in the hope that they would be found by “sympathetic people on the other side who wanted to help.”

In an archive file filled with “tiny pink slips of paper,” Mr. Corera found “messages from ordinary people living under Nazi rule in occupied Europe that had been brought back by pigeon.” Some messages revealed “vital intelligence on Nazi plans to invade England” and “news of the latest German weapons,” but many were simply “a unique and untapped insight into the realities of daily life under Nazi occupation, from the struggles over food to the attitude toward collaborators.”
