Product description

Review

By 1942 the SOE was desperate for new recruits to aid the liberation of France. Despite initial opposition, the first women agents joined the service. Forming the F Section (F for French), these young women from all walks of life showed remarkable qualities and courage, and many were to sacrifice their lives in the pursuit of freedom. In this well-researched book, Beryl Escott explores the history of the F Section, its members, training, missions and legacy. Divided into chapters covering each woman s story, and featuring archive photographs, it is both a fascinating and devastating read. --Family Tree Magazine

Tells the story of of brave and efficient women who worked behind enemy lines having been parachuted into France with communications equipment. --Grimsby Evening Telegraph
