Default Pearl Witherington: British spy who fought the Nazis

' "I don't consider I did anything extraordinary," she said. "I did it because I wanted to, because it was useful, because it had to be done." '

she was not the only woman doing behind the lines work in France; however, she was the highest leader of a large resistance group. Eisenhower said w/o the SOE D-Day wouldn't have been such a success.

a good read and a good video:

Thanks for the link and information on this very "extraordinary" woman. (I don't care what she has to say about that!)
