Really gripping book - couldn't put it down
This book lived up to the New York Times review on the cover. It was written so as to read more like a novel and definitely not like a dry history. Even so, it is the true story of a remarkable woman and those around her who worked to free France during World War II.
It also is the story of how she was held back by men who were intimidated by her abilities and couldn't admit a woman could be more capable at a task than a man.
It is definitely a good read and will make you think!
