Said to have been Churchills favorite spy, her exploits in Poland, Hungary, and France were legendary, even in her lifetime. As an agent of the Special Operations Executive, Christine--the first woman to be dropped into France from Algiers--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.
