Nancy Wake is one of the true heroines who risked her life thousands of times to save people from the Nazi's, she was Australian and could have left before the war started and not done a thing to lift a finger. She lost her husband and her fortune helping people survive and lost many compatriots. She was clever, resourceful and so astonishingly brave. People should read these memoirs instead of historical fiction, you will never read a mystery or fictional account more interesting than this.
