Written also is the near criminal blunders made by the SOE costing many SOE agents lives.
This is not a pretty story. It is not romantic adventure yet this book is near impossible to put down.
Whether they were naive, ill informed or perhaps romanticising about their soon to be dangerous assignments, these four woman - and others like them - did the best they could during their all too often too short a time in service. For me this book serves as a beginning. I plan to read more about the real people involved in the planning and those who carried out the espionage tactics during the war years rather than fictional counterparts. Thanks to the author and her many sources who undertook the research to bring this fascinating story to print. A remarkable tribute to four women who chose the hard way - do something, when so many chose the easy way - do nothing.
