How Britain's Women Secret Agents Changed the Course of the Second World War

Availability: In stock

Author: Bernard O'Connor

Over sixty female agents were sent out by Britain's Special Operations Executive (SOE) during the Second World War. These women - as well as others from clandestine Allied organisations - were flown out and parachuted or landed into occupied Europe on vital and highly dangerous missions. Their missions were as wireless operators, couriers and sometimes organisers with resistance movements both before and after D-Day. Bernard O'Connor relates the experiences of these agents by drawing on a range of sources, including many of the women's accounts of their wartime service. There are stories of rigorous training, thrilling undercover operations evading capture by the Gestapo in Nazi occupied France, tragic betrayals and extraordinary courage.
