Mission France: The True History of the Women of SOE
Formed in 1940, Special Operations Executive was to coordinate Resistance work overseas. Kate Vigurs interweaves for the first time the stories of all 39 female agents. Tracing their journeys from early recruitment to work undertaken in the field, to evasion from, or capture by, the Gestapo, Vigurs shows just how greatly missions varied.
Among them was Noor Inayat Khan, best known for her heroism as a clandestine Allied wireless radio operative in occupied France during World War II.
