An action-packed graphic novel about agents who helped the Allies prepare for D-Day and push the Germans out of France during World War II.

In 1942, World War II was growing more and more intense. Germany and its allies had occupied a great deal of Europe—including part of France. With the enemy just a few miles from England, Prime Minister Winston Churchill was determined to help free France. To make his plan work, he needed people who could secretly help prepare the French for a big fight. He found 39 daring women who were up to the task—including Andrée Borrel and Lise de Baissac. These women would help support the French Resistance and sabotage German operations in preparation for the 1944 D-Day invasion. In this full-color graphic novel, discover more about these bold women who helped free France from German occupation during World War Il.
