Written by top journalists, each story is a gem of a bio, a full life in miniature.

Hatfield, the celebrated antiwar Republican senator from Oregon, next to Nancy Wake of the title, the impoverished New Zealander who grew up to become a high-society hostess and heroine of the French Resistance?the socialite who did, indeed, kill a Nazi with her bare hands."@en ;
