MISSION FRANCE The True History of the Women of SOE

by | Read by Esther Wane

History • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Thirty-nine women served as British undercover agents in France during WWII. They came from a variety of backgrounds, and their stories are equally varied. A few have been chronicled in depth, but most lingered in near anonymity until now. This audiobook tells their stories. Their lives and exploits translate well to audio, and Esther Wane offers a solid narration. Her tone is generally even with no false theatrics, yet she still captures the sense of danger the women faced at nearly every turn. The author's use of acronyms occasionally hinders listener comprehension, and with 39 stories the work can be hard to follow at times. But both are small problems. Overall, the audiobook and the narration do justice to these courageous women. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2021]
