Abstract:

"To the allies, she was a fearless freedom fighter, a Special Operations legend, a woman ahead of her time. To the Gestapo, she was a ghost, a shadow, the most wanted person in the world. But at first, Nancy Wake was just another young woman living in Marseille and recently engaged to a man she loved."--Publisher.

To the Allies, she was a fearless freedom fighter, a special operations legend, a woman ahead of her time. To the Gestapo, she was a ghost, a shadow, the most wanted person in the world. When France fell to the Nazi blitzkrieg, Nancy Wake was just another young woman living in Marseilles. Drawn into the underground Resistance, she gained notoriety as the White Mouse, with a 5-million-franc bounty hanging over her head. Escaping to Britain, Wake joins the Special Operations Executive (SOE). As she and her maquisards battle the Nazis, their every engagement brings the end of the war closer-- but places her husband in deeper peril. -- adapted from jacket.
