The Lady Was a Spy: Female Operatives in World War II
Thursday, March 28 6:30 pm
Throughout World War II, a group of fearless patriots risked their lives to achieve victory in Europe. They were the women of Britain’s SOE and the United States’ OSS. Women such as Virginia Hill, considered America’s greatest female spy, and Christine Granville, Churchill’s favorite spy, were crucial to the war effort, yet their stories and others’ have only recently been revealed.
The Lady Was a Spy, presented by Dr. Linda De Roche, focuses on the lives and experiences of these brave women, many of whom died completing their missions, to highlight their unconventional contributions to victory in World War II.
