Product description

Review

A gripping, relevant and timely read about a remarkable woman from a talented writer - Deborah Frances-White, author of The Guilty Feminist

Riveting ... one of the most breath-taking stories yet told of female courage behind enemy lines - Sarah Helm, author of If This Is A Woman and A Life In Secrets

Impressively researched and compellingly written, this brilliant biography puts Virginia Hall - and her prosthetic leg Cuthbert - back where they belong: right in the heart of resistance history - Clare Mulley, author of The Spy Who Loved and The Women Who Flew for Hitler

What a fascinating story! With careful research and skillful writing, Purnell takes you deep into the covert operations Hall led in Nazi-occupied France ... Riveting - Douglas Waller, author of Wild Bill Donovan: The Spymaster Who Created the OSS and Modern American Espionage

Remarkable ... this lively examination... shows how, if Hall had been a man, dropping undercover in and out of occupied Vichy, Paris, and Lyon, setting up safe houses, and coordinating couriers for the Resistance, she would now be as famous as James Bond ... Meticulous research results in a significant biography of a trailblazer who now has a CIA building named after her - Kirkus Reviews

Book Description

The incredible untold story of Virginia Hall, an American woman with a wooden leg who infiltrated Occupied France for the SOE and became the Gestapo's most wanted Allied spy, written by acclaimed biographer Sonia Purnell.
