Description
The youngest of the group was a schoolgirl of sixteen, who scrawled "V" (for victory) on the walls of her lycée; the eldest, a farmer's wife in her sixties who harbored escaped Allied airmen. Strangers to one another, hailing from villages and cities across France, they were 230 women united in defiance of their Nazi occupiers. They were eventually hunted down by the Gestapo and imprisoned in a fort outside Paris, where they found solace and strength in their deep affection and camaraderie, before being sent to Auschwitz. Only 49 returned after the war. The biographer of Freya Stark, Iris Origo, and Martha Gellhorn, human rights activist Caroline Moorehead tells the "heartbreaking and inspiring" stories (NYTBR) of ordinary women under extraordinary circumstances.

"Heightened by electrifying, and staggering, detail, Moorehead's riveting history stands as a luminous testament to the indomitable will to survive and the unbreakable bonds of friendship."—Booklist (starred review)
