Hard to put down, biography of the personal life of Nancy Wake. Important NZ and Australian history, a great read.

Description

The number one bestselling biography of Australia's greatest war heroine - over 84 000 copies sold in its first two formats. In the early 1930s Nancy Wake was a young woman enjoying a bohemian life in Paris. By the end of the Second World War she was the Gestapo's most wanted person. As a naive young journalist Nancy Wake witnessed a horrific scene of Nazi violence in a Viennese street. From that moment she declared that she would do everything in her power to rid Europe of the Nazis. What began as a courier job here and there became a highly successful escape network for Allied soldiers perfectly camouflaged by Nancy's high-society life in Marseille. Her network was soon so successful - and so notorious - that she was forced to flee France to escape the Gestapo who had dubbed her 'the white mouse' for her knack of slipping through its traps. But Nancy was a passionate enemy of the Nazis and refused to stay away. Supplying weapons and training members of a powerful underground fighting force organising Allied parachute drops cycling four hundred kilometres across a mountain range to find a new transmitting radio - nothing seemed too difficult in her fight against the Nazis. Peter FitzSimons reveals Nancy Wake's compelling story a tale of an ordinary woman doing extraordinary things.
