In the early 1930s, Nancy Wake was a young woman enjoying a bohemian life in Paris. By the end of the Second World War, she was the Gestapo's most wanted person. As a naive, young journalist, Nancy Wake witnessed a horrific scene of Nazi violence in a Viennese street. From that moment, she declared that she would do everything in her power to rid Europe of the Nazis.

What began as a courier job here and there became a highly successful escape network for Allied soldiers, perfectly camouflaged by Nancy's high-society life in Marseille. Her network was soon so successful - and so notorious - that she was forced to flee France to escape the Gestapo, who had dubbed her 'the white mouse' for her knack of slipping through its traps. But Nancy was a passionate enemy of the Nazis and refused to stay away.

Supplying weapons and training members of a powerful underground fighting force, organising Allied parachute drops, cycling four hundred kilometres across a mountain range to find a new transmitting radio - nothing seemed too difficult in her fight against the Nazis. Peter FitzSimons reveals Nancy Wake's compelling story, a tale of an ordinary woman doing extraordinary things.

    " Interesting though poorly written biography of an Australian woman who fought with the French resistance in WWII. "

    " This is a biography... its actually pretty good. I had to skim most of it for my project, but I felt so guilty doing it because I actually felt like I was jumping ahead in a book that has this huge climactic end! "

    " I loved the story. What a tremendous woman! The story was like the author reading his notes he had made in interviews with her. "

    " Good enough that, even though I discovered that I didn't like Nancy all that much very early on, I couldn't help but keep reading. I admire her enormously, but I can't like her. "
