Lonely Courage: The true story of the SOE heroines who fought to free Nazi-occupied France Paperback – 1 October 2018
‘This compelling and complete account of the extraordinarily courageous women of SOE is at turns enthralling, edge-of-the-seat exciting and also heart-breaking. The way in which they were sent into Nazi-occupied Europe and left to face unspeakable danger remains astonishing and Stroud's book is a reminder and fitting testimony to their immense bravery’ -- James Holland
‘Stroud has a storyteller’s eye for human detail matched with a researcher’s diligence.’
― Independent on Sunday
‘Each of the lives that Stroud relates so well offers a shining example of heroism – dauntless, patriotic readiness to risk everything for the cause of human decency.’ -- Nigel Jones ― Sunday Telegraph
‘In this superb book, Rick Stroud honours their awe-inspiring bravery and self-sacrifice by telling their stories with an historian’s attention to detail and a novelist’s empathy and sense of drama… it is a pacy chronological account… vividly and concisely delivered by a writer with an encyclopaedic knowledge of World War Two.’ -- Rebecca McQuillan ― The Herald
‘Written with genuine vigour, this book pays tribute to truly outstanding female bravery...this is a book that lingers in the mind long after the last page’ -- Elizabeth Fitzherbert ― The Lady
'A gripping narrative' -- Marcus Binney ― Country Life
'Fascinating ... a hugely engaging account, that weaves the women’s stories together with increasing momentum towards its poignant conclusion.’ -- Clare Mulley ― Spectator
'A timely and important book...we are in awe of their courage' -- Alan Ogden
'Superbly written' -- Elizabeth Buchan
