Reviews

A welcome addition to WWII literature. Kirkus Reviews"
"The riveting stories of the courageous British and American female special agents rattle out in quick-fire bursts from these pages. But what gives this book weight is the interweaving of the SOE and OSS narratives, all to much divorced in histories of the secret war." --Clare Mulley, author of The Spy Who Loved: The Secrets and Livesof Christine Granville and The Woman Who Saved the Children
"A welcome addition to WWII literature." --Kirkus Reviews
"This is an invaluable historical account, shedding light on the heroism and bravery of the women spies who helped usher the Allied forces toward a victory." --ForeWord
"Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, Shadow Warriors of World War II is strongly and unreservedly recommended as a critically important contribution to community, college, and university library World War II Military History collections and supplemental studies reading lists." --Midwest Book Review
