Product description


"Inspiring accounts of the lives of women--some of them still in their teens--whose courage made a difference in the dark days of World War II." --Rita Kramer, author of Flames in the Field: The Story of Four SOE Agents in Occupied France

"These stories will restore your faith in the human spirit and encourage us all to remember to do what is right. . . . [A] must read for anyone who has ever asked themselves: 'What can I do? Can one person really make a difference?'" --Kenneth Koskodan, author of No Greater Ally: The Untold Story of Poland's Forces in World War II

"Atwood's admiration and enthusiasm for her subjects is apparent in these engaging profiles, and readers will likely be inspired to investigate these fascinating women further." --Kirkus Reviews

"Each story has been meticulously researched. . . . This is a great read for students who like adventure or are researching World War II." --VOYA, Voices of Youth Advocate reviews

"Adds a vital dimension to more traditional titles on the war. It will appeal to browsers seeking adventure tales while also enriching classes in history and women's studies, and units on war and peace...Recommended" --Library Media Connection
