3.0 out of 5 stars More to her, 14 Sep 2009
This review is from: Spy Princess: The Life of Noor Inayat Khan (Paperback)
Noor Inayat Khan was one of a surprising number of agents who knowingly sacrificed their lives in the Second World War for freedom. Once dropped into France, she had only the slightest chance to survive. When writing a biography of these the centerpiece can be the action, the suspense, the adventure. It can also be digging to find what inspired him, or in this case her. On this point the book is very weak. Her background child of a guru, with more than a whiff( sorry for my spelling) of the charlatan (concentrating his efforts on rich lonely women) is described naively romantic; etc.

A good example how such a story should be tackled is the book on the Dutch agent Dutilh (unfortunately never translated).
