Summary
The author "draws on her own experiences and interviews with more than a hundred other OSS women to reveal some of the most tantalizing stories and best-kept secrets of the war in Europe and Asia. ... Along with famous names like Julia Child and Marlene Dietrich, readers will discover such intrepid agents as Amy 'Cynthia' Thorpe, who seduced a Vichy official and stole naval codes from the French embassy."--Jacket
