Sobre o livro
Odette Brailly entered the nation's consciousness in the 1950s when her remarkable - and romantic - exploits as a Special Operations Executive (SOE) agent first came to light. Historian Penny Starns delves into SOE personnel files to reveal the true story of this wartime heroine and the officer who posed as her husband. From Odette's life as a French housewife living in Britain, and her work undercover with the French Resistance, to her arrest, torture and unlikely surivial in Ravensbruck concentration camp, Odette's true mission and the heart-breaking identity of her real betrayer is revealed for the first time.
