An incredible tale of bravery, hardship, resilience. I understand completely why they never wanted to re-live it, but what history we’ve lost as a result!
The thrilling, cinematic untold story of nine young women, WWII resistance fighters, captured by the Nazis, who launched a breathtakingly bold escape and found their way home.
The author is the great-niece of one of the nine, and their gripping flight across war-torn Europe is interwoven with her own detective work, as she uncovers the incredible escape and survival of the nine, creating a powerful, heart-stopping tribute to the power of humanity in the darkest of times. For too long stories of courage from WWII have been about men: here is a group of women heroes who fought fearlessly against the Germans and lived to tell the tale.
