After helping people flee France from the Nazi's Nancy found herself fleeing to England. Determined to do more, she joined the military and parachuted back into France to coordinate drops of weapons and supplies with the resistance. Overall, I thought Nancy was an intriguing and brave person. At times the book did go into more details about partying and drinking than her missions, but I guess that was just her personality. Overall, an interesting book, one worth picking up. ( )

Fascinating story about the French Resistance and the daring exploits of Nancy Wake. Born in New Zealand, raised in Australia, Nancy survived the war, was much decorated, and showed great courage in very dangerous situations. ( )
