3.0 out of 5 stars The music was great...but......, 4 Sep 2009
The music is terrific. However on this version there appears to be a defective recording with a tendency for the disc to stutter. I have exchanged the disc once (the Amazon returns service was excellent) but the faltering tracks are in the same place.........

5.0 out of 5 stars A riveting read at many levels, 21 Oct 2007
This is in all senses a fascinating book. So rare to read a factual acccount of the war written by a woman, about women. It benefits greatly from a throrough treatment of the human and personal aspects of life in these momentous times. It is at once a biography, a detective story, a spy story and a narrative of war time events, illuminated throughout by the tale of the enigmatic life and tragic end of Noor Inayat Khan. It is a very fitting tribute to the other courageous women and men of SOE. The only problem with this book is putting it down once you have started reading.
