The Heroines of SOE Book
By: Pat Farey
Sub-titled ‘F Section Britain’s Secret Women in France’ this book tells the stories of 40 women, some of whom are familiar to us such as Odette Sansom and Violette Szabo, but others are sadly little-known to us and really we should know more.
This book solves that matter by telling us more about the brave women agents who were sent to France to help bring about the Allied victory. All were immensely brave. When captured and treated most basely, even being sent to concentration camps, they never revealed anything about their roles. Some like Noor-Un-Nisa Inayat Khan paid the ultimate price and were shot. This book reminds us that women went about this most dangerous work deep in enemy-occupied territory and achieved results that far exceeded expectations.
