Nancy Wake – a murit acum 2 saptamini si cred ca ar fi putut inspira muuulte filme de succes.
She was referred to as the White Mouse by the Gestapo, which tried and failed to kill her. For Nancy Wake, who died Aug. 7 at 98, proved elusive, using a combination of glamour and grit to become one of World War II’s most decorated spies. The wife of a French millionaire, she worked with the French Resistance and led an army of guerrilla fighters. A deceptively fierce warrior–Wake reportedly never went anywhere without Chanel lipstick–she claimed to have killed a German soldier with her bare hands and received the highest medals for bravery from the U.S., Britain and France.
