Autobiography of the Woman the Gestapo Called the White Mouse, the

Wake, Nancy

Female French Resistance memoir: that’s all you need to know, right? Nancy Wake was high-spirited and strong-willed. She wasn’t the best writer you’ll ever read, but her memoir does give you some sense of her personality and adventures in Europe during World War II. It leaves you hungry for more, so like me, you’ll probably want to dig up a copy of Nancy Wake: a Biography of Our Greatest War Heroine or Nancy Wake: SOE’s Greatest Heroine.

CATS: no, but she really loved her dog Picon
