About this event:
Join us for a lively discussion of Christine: SOE Agent and Churchill’s Favourite Spy by Madeleine Masson. Christine Granville was one of the most celebrated female agents of World War II. Said to have been Churchill’s “favorite spy,” her exploits in Poland, Hungary, and France were legendary, even in her lifetime. As an agent of the Special Operations Executive, Christine landed in the Vercors in 1944, where as “Pauline Armand,” she performed with tremendous valor. Christine is the thrilling tale of a fearless woman ready to die for freedom.
