Nancy Wake, nicknamed 'the white mouse' for her ability to evade capture, tells her own story. As the Gestapo's most wanted person, and one of the most highly decorated servicewomen of the war, it's a story worth telling. After living and working in Paris in the 1930's, Nancy married a wealthy Frenchman and settled in Marseilles. Her idyllic new life was ended by World War II and the invasion of France. Her life shattered, Nancy joined the French resistance and, later, began work with an escape-route network for allied soldiers. Eventually Nancy had to escape from France herself to avoid capture by the Gestapo. In London she trained with the Special Operations Executive as a secret agent and saboteur before parachuting back into France. Nancy became a leading figure in the Maquis of the Auvergne district, in charge of finance and obtaining arms, and helped to forge the Maquis into a superb fighting force. During her lifetime, Nancy Wake was hailed as a legend. Her autobiography recounts her extraordinary wartime experiences in her own words.… (mer)

After helping people flee France from the Nazi's Nancy found herself fleeing to England. Determined to do more, she joined the military and parachuted back into France to coordinate drops of weapons and supplies with the resistance. Overall, I thought Nancy was an intriguing and brave person. At times the book did go into more details about partying and drinking than her missions, but I guess that was just her personality. Overall, an interesting book, one worth picking up. ( )

une écriture plus précise aurait été très précieuse... Ceci dit, une fois de plus ce sont ceux qui en on moins l'air qui sont les plus courageux. Beaucoup de bravoure, de chance, de dévouement, de sacrifices.... Beaucoup d'alcool aussi ;-) Merci Miss Wake! ( )

Fascinating story about the French Resistance and the daring exploits of Nancy Wake. Born in New Zealand, raised in Australia, Nancy survived the war, was much decorated, and showed great courage in very dangerous situations. ( )

This is the story of a naive and rather sensitive young Australasia romantic who arrived in Paris in 1934 determined not to be uncouth, and of how her experiences made her the woman who K.O.'d a waiter with her bare fist in a Paris club in 1945.
