Description

As the second world war raged across Europe, and the Nazi regime tightened its reign of horror and oppression, nine women, some still in their teens, joined the French and Dutch Resistance. Caught out in heroic acts against the brutal occupying regime, they were each tortured and sent east into Greater Germany to a forced labour camp, where they formed a powerful friendship. In 1945, as the war turned against Hitler, they were forced on a Death March, facing starvation and almost certain death. Determined to survive, they made a bid for freedom, and so began one of the most breath-taking tales of escape and resilience of the Second World War.

The author is the great-niece of one of the nine, and their gripping flight across war-torn Europe is interwoven with her own detective work, as she uncovers the heart-stopping escape and survival of these women heroes, who fought fearlessly against Nazi Germany and lived to tell the tale.
