Summary

The story of Noor Inayat Khan, who served as a British spy and wireless operator for four months in Nazi-occupied Paris during WWII. Born in 1914, she was raised as a pacifist in Paris by her father, an Indian spiritual leader, and his American wife. However, after Germany's 1940 invasion, she fled to England and joined its Women's Auxiliary Air Force before being recruited by the SOE, a British espionage unit. She was captured in October 1943; and executed at Dachau a year later. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
