the autobiography of the woman the gestapo called
the white mouse
Nancy Wake, an Australian who became one of the most highly decorated women of World War II, now tells her own story.
After living and working in Paris in the 1930s, Nancy married a wealthy Frenchman and settled in Marseilles. Her idyllic new life was ended in WWII and her work with an escape route network for Allied soldiers. Eventually Nancy had to escape from France to avoid capture by the Gestapo.
In London she trained with the special Operations Executive as a secret agent and saboteur before parachuting back into France. Nancy became a leading figure in the Marquis of the Auvergne district, in charge of finance and obtaining arms, and helped to forge the Marquis into a superb fighting force.
