Andrée Borrel, Lise de Baissac, Odette Sansom, Yvonne Rudellat, and Mary Herbert all worked as undercover operatives in France during World War II. At a time when women did not serve in combat, these women were trained in the use of arms and explosives. Some of the women served as field leaders. Journalist Rose tells their stories, including both these women’s voices and the voices of those who knew them well.

Having watched the British television series Wish Me Luck at least a couple of times, I was very interested in the true stories of the women operatives in France. The stories of these women were every bit as interesting as I hoped they would be. However, the book as a whole seems incomplete. Only one of the five women was still in active service by the end of the war in Europe. The first two thirds of the book is largely the story of failures, then suddenly it’s D-Day and the Americans and British land in Normandy and fight their way through to liberate all of France. More attention to the broader context in which these women served would have strengthened the book. I kept waiting for an explanation of why the author chose to focus on these particular women. Were they representative of all of the women who were undercover operatives in France? If not, how were they different? I found the answers to these questions not in the text, but in the interview with the author included in the book club guide at the end of the book. ( )

During World War II, the British placed French-speaking female spies inside France as part of the Resistance efforts. These women did important work preparing for a forthcoming operation to be called D-Day. While designed for a general audience with the loathsome hidden endnotes, the heavy use of military jargon made it difficult to read. I appreciated learning about the efforts of Odette, Andree, Lise, and others, but I found myself disinterested so much of the time because of the heavy use of military abbreviations and jargon (and perhaps espionage jargon). The story needs to be told. I wish it had been a more engaging narrative. ( )

The spies that helped us win WWII were the quiet, unsung heroes. We never could have won the war without them. Their creative ingenuity, perserverance, and stealthfulness were so inspiring.
This book focuses on the female spies of the British. No one suspected they were doing the work they were doing for most of the war. True heroes! ( )

Sarah Rose writes an interesting narrative the women of the SOE and how they contributed to the Allies efforts in WWII. While maybe not the best practice as an historian, I really appreciated that Rose took the time to humanize each of these women and display their quirks, habits, and unique personalities alongside their romances and specific functions within the war.

This book is definitely an overview - it's a good place to start learning about women in espionage in WWII. Each of the women are fascinating her own right, and stories that should be passed on. I recommend this book for its accessibility to any reader as well as its fine overview on a rarely discussed contribution to a historic period.
