About this product
- Description'The Shadow Warriors' is fascinating look at the women of the UK and US secret service branches during World War II. These were women of ermous cunning and strength of will, and the Shadow Warriors' stories have remained untold until w. In a dramatically different tale of espionage and conspiracy in World War II, this book unveils the history of the courageous women who volunteered to work behind enemy lines in Nazi Occupied Europe. Sent by United States' OSS and Britain's SOE into Occupied Europe, these brave women wove a web of resistance groups across the continent. Their extraordinary heroism, initiative, and resourcefulness contributed to the Allied breakout of the Normandy beachheads and even infiltrated Nazi Germany at the height of the war, into the very heart of Hitler's citadel - Berlin. Young and daring, the female agents accepted that they could be captured, tortured, or killed, but others were always readied to take their place. So effective did the female agents become in their efforts that the Germans often placed a bounty of a million Francs on the heads of operatives disrupting their troops.
