Learn about Virginia Hall, the "most dangerous of all Allied
spies", in this exciting narrative biography!
Virginia never thought she'd be a spy. The young American had
been working for the State Department overseas when she was involved
in a serious accident. Despite this setback, Hall was eager to
do something to help the Allies win World War II.
She made her way to France where she helped coordinate underground
resistance movements, sabotaging the Nazis at every turn. Her
covert operations, including capturing 500 Germans, greatly contributed
to the Allies' eventual win.
In The Lady is a Spy, award-winning author Don Mitchell
(The Freedom Summer Murders) explores the fascinating life
of America's greatest female spy.
Thoroughly researched and full of rarely seen photographs from
Virginia Hall's family, this is an extraordinary, in-depth look
at a true hero.
