Virginia Hall left comfortable Baltimore roots to go to work for the a British espionage and sabotage organization. As Hitler was building toward the peak of his power in Europe, Virginia became the architect of the Resistance in central France, helping escaped prisoners of war and American Allied paratroopers get to safety.
The Gestapo considered her so dangerous, they put a price on her head, forcing her to escape over the Pyrenees mountains—and on an artificial leg.
She requested a return to France, disguised as an old peasant woman. She and her team captured 500 German soldiers and killed more than 150, as well as sabotaging Nazi communication and transportation lines.
To the Germans, she was “the lady with a limp.” To the Allies, she was a savior. This is her true story, her ONLY biography to include information from those brave men who were a part of her spy circuit.
