Liberation tells the fascinating story of Nancy Wake, who was born in New Zealand but grew up in Australia before fleeing at 16. She eventually made a new life in France, first as a freelance journalist then as a socialite wife, and finally as a courageous agent with a price of five million francs put on her head by the Gestapo.
"These are exciting and well-written accounts of wartime valour, and their protagonist's qualities shine through. As the authors' note to Liberation observes, Nancy Wake's life was too full to be contained by any single novel... fine addition(s) to the literature on this extraordinary woman."
Liberation is published by Sphere / Little, Brown in hardback and eBook on Thursday 26th March.
