In January 1943, 230 women of the French Resistance weresent to the death camps by the Nazis who had invaded and occupied theircountry.

Caroline Moorehead, a distinguishedbiographer, human rights journalist, and the author of Dancing to the Precipiceand Human Cargo, brings to life an extraordinary story that readers ofMitchell Zuckoff’s Lost in Shangri-La, ErikLarson’s In the Garden of Beasts, and Laura Hillenbrand’s Unbrokenwill find an essential addition to our retelling of the history of WorldWar II—a riveting, rediscovered story of courageous women who sacrificedeverything to combat the march of evil across the world.
