Behind Enemy Lines: The True Story of a French Jewish Spy in Nazi Germany by Marthe Cohn
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I am forever amazed at what people during World War II endured and lived to tell about. This true story reveals the life of a French Jewish woman and her family. Trained as a nurse, Marthe Cohn was full of an heroic boldness that saved herself and much of her family, as the Nazi occupation pushed them out of their homes, seeking refuge further south in France. As the war neared the end, Marthe served with the French First Army, aiding the allied commanders in troop movements and plans of the enemy. She was awarded the highest military order in France, the Medaille Militaire at the age of 80. An inspiring story of a common woman giving quite uncommon devotion to her country.
