In 1942, the Gestapo would stop at nothing to track down a mysterious "limping lady" who was fighting for the freedom of France. The Nazi chiefs issued a simple but urgent command: "She is the most dangerous of all Allied spies. We must find and destroy her." The Gestapo's target was Virginia Hall, a glamorous American with a wooden leg who broke through the barriers against her gender and disability to be the first woman to infiltrate Vichy France. In so doing she helped turn the course of the intelligence war. Based on new research, Sonia Purnell has uncovered the full secret life of Virginia Hall, an astounding and inspiring story of heroism, spycraft, and personal triumph over adversity.
