PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, Starred review
In 1942, the Allies were losing, Germany seemed unstoppable, and every ableman in England was fighting. Believing that Britain was locked in anexistential battle, Winston Churchill had already created a secret agency, theSpecial Operations Executive (SOE), whose spies were trained in everythingfrom demolition to sharpshoot­ing. Their job, he declared, was to 'set Europeablaze'. But with most men on the front lines, the SOE was forced to dosomething unprecedented: recruit women. Thirty-nine answered the call, leavingtheir lives and families to become saboteurs in France.
In D-Day Girls , Sarah Rose draws on recently de­classified files, diaries,and oral histories to tell the thrilling story of three of these remarkablewomen. There's Andr?e Borrel, a scrappy and streetwise Parisian who blew uppower lines with the Gestapo hot on her heels; Odette Sansom, an unhappilymarried suburban mother who saw the SOE as her ticket out of domestic life andinto a meaningful adventure; and Lise de Baissac, a fiercely independentmember of French colonial high society and the SOE's unflap­pable 'queen'.Together, they destroyed train lines, ambushed Nazis, plotted prison breaks,and gathered crucial intelligence-laying the groundwork for the D-Day invasionthat proved to be the turning point in the war.
Rigorously researched and written with razor-sharp wit, D-Day Girls is aninspiring story for our own moment of resistance: a reminder of what courage-and the energy of politically animated women-can accomplish when the stakesseem incalculably high.
