Thirteen never returned. This is the true story of eight of those female agents, all striking beauties (despite the need to be inconspicuous), all from civilian life, who were warned of the likelihood of arrest, torture and a brutal death before they volunteered. None demurred. These young women were given months of arduous fitness, gun, explosives, endurance and code training before parachuting into occupied territory.

The book contains eight very personal tales. Why did these women volunteer? Where did they come from? Marcus Binney tells of a life of Resistance work and undercover operations, clandestine activities and even armed combat, and a constant fear of discovery.

But above all, this is the story of extreme bravery and devotion to duty.
