It was 1941 and, just before her eighteenth birthday, Noreen received her call up papers, and was faced with either working in a munitions factory or joining the WRENS. Liking the look of the Wrens uniform, Noreen opted for that. But when one of her interviewers realized she spoke fluent French, she was directed to a government building on Baker Street.

It was SOE headquarters, where she was immediately recruited into F-Section, led by Colonel Maurice Buckmaster. For the next four years, Noreen worked with Buckmaster and her fellow operatives to support the French Resistance. Sworn to secrecy, Noreen told no one that she spent her days meeting agents returning from behind enemy lines, acting as a decoy, passing on messages in tea rooms and picking up codes in crossword puzzles. Vivid, witty, insightful and often moving this is the story of one young woman's secret war, offering readers an authentic and compelling insight into what really went on in Churchill's ‘secret army' from one of its last surviving members.
