This is just a great read, just what you'd expect from Follett. You wonder how the gals can beat the Gestapo, seems the odds are all stacked against them.... Read Pillars of thr Earth, too. It's one of the best I ever read!
Suspense, drama, excellent plotline. A well told story about female British agents during WW2 just before D-Day. Real page-turner.
I loved this book! Ken Follett never disappoints me, but here, he really stirs the imagination as he follow 6 British women undercover agents working in France just days before the D-Day invation. His images of World War II are so vividly drawn that you can almost picture yourself there. This gives one a great appreciation of the dangers faced by the French underground.
Another book I couldn't put down - based on real heroes during WWII.
A review, "A very entertaining, very cinematic thriller about a ragtag, all-female band of British agents, code-named Jackdaws, sent to blow up a key telephone exchange in France..." -Publishers Weekly
