8vo., First Edition, on laid paper, with a portrait frontispiece and 16 plates on 15, small contemporary inscription in French on front free endpaper; red cloth, gilt back, fore-edges lightly dust-soiled else a very good, bright, clean copy in price-clipped dustwrapper, the latter just a little frayed at extremities. An SOE classic. Odette Churchill (nee Sansom) was one of the most famous SOE agents of WWII. Operating under the code-name 'Lise' she dropped into occupied France where she was eventually captured, imprisoned and tortured first at Fresnes and finally at Ravensbruck. One of the few FANY agents to survive the war, she was awarded the George Cross for gallantry and subsequently married fellow-SOE agent Captain Peter Churchill ('Raoul'). Foot (p.463) describes this account as 'a popular and partly fictionalised life; accurate in parts'. Certainly it is one of the half-dozen or so key works relating to SOE agents in France and the basis of Herbert Wilcox's feature film (1950) starring Anna Neagle and Trevor Howard. Enser, p.401; Foot, p.463. N° de ref. de la librería 18772
