In this expanded edition, readers will encounter six new profiles of amazing women, as well as a new section on the Soviet Union. Noor Inayat Khan was the first female radio operator sent into occupied France and transferred crucial messages to the Resistance. Johtje Vos, a Dutch housewife, hid Jews in her home and repeatedly outsmarted the Gestapo. Law student Hannie Schaft became involved in the most dangerous resistance worksabotage, weapons transference, and assassinations. In these pages, young readers will meet these and many other similarly courageous women and girls who risked their lives to help defeat the Nazis. An overview of World War II and summaries of each country’s involvement provide a framework for better understanding each woman’s unique circumstances, and resources for further learning follow each profile.
