Nora Inayat Khan, code name Madeleine, a heroine of the SOE, killed in Dachau.

My cyber gal-pal Jennifer Niven has posted this link to an episode from the series “Secrets of War” about female spies during World War II.  Would I had seen it sooner. 

A book reference I can recommend on the same topic is A Life in Secrets:  Vera Atkins and the Missing Agents of WWII, although it is not for the faint of heart.  (Nor was the British Special Operations Executive, who employed these women.)  Very moving, very heart-breaking.

Can’t wait for Jennifer’s latest, “Becoming Clementine,” which, I have the inside knowledge to tell you, is NOT about the wife of Winston Churchill.
