I would add this book to any young woman's reading list!
The author of this book was a complex and multi-talented individual with a career that included journalist, magazine editor (several times), film producer, university lecturer in film and media, playright and author of over 30 titles of which most were fiction but also included a biography on Charlie Chaplin. One may feel it necessary to ask why a writer whose background is mostly in fiction would choose or be asked to write a biography. That background in fiction also forces to the surface the question about the book's factuality and whether some portions were invented. The author's film work was based in Britain and Hollywood and he had worked with some of the big names in film. This book was first published in 1956 and the film of the same name was released soon afterwards.
This book's story is that of Violette Szabo, a British-born Anglo-French woman then working as a shop assistant who met and married an officer of the French Foreign Legion who would be killed at El Alamein in 1942.Read more ›
She served in the SOE, secret British service, and was sent on missions to occupied France to help the Resistance movements.
This book is a monument to the memory of a lady who lived and died for our freedom.
I am so amazed by her courage and that of her parents when in guessing the work she was doing did not try and stop her. As a parent I think I would have lacked the courage not to stop my daughter.
Violette was an ordinary girl, like so many of the Girls who went into enemy territory and I do not think that she, or the other girls and boys (and the reality is they were youngsters), have been recognised for their bravery.
History has shown us how horrific the Germans were that one cannot begin to acknowledge what happened to Violette at the hands of the monsters.
We should remember all our service personnel for without them we would not enjoy the freedom we have
Such a sad ending.
