Interesting story and wanted to enjoy but just too detailed and had to slog through the minutia of infighting and distrust between political factions and different resistance groups. Could have used a good editor to hack down to the more intriguing details instead of what seemed to almost be a recap of each and every day of life during the war.

Amazing true story of brave spy in WW II, Christine Granville.
She was fearless and saved many lives while passing invaluable information onto to the English.
Why is she not famous?? Probably because she was a woman.
She makes the fictional exploits of James Bond and others pale in comparison.
She is the real thing-a hero!
