Odette Brailly entered the public eye in the 1950's when her remarkable exploits as a Special Operations Executive agent first came to light. She was the first woman to be awarded the George Cross as well as the Legion d'Honneur and in 1950 the release of a film about her life made her the darling of the British popular press. In the first full biography of this incredible woman for nearly sixty years, historian Penny Starns delves into recently opened SOE personnel files to reveal the true story of this wartime heroine and the officer who posed as her husband.
