Lynne Olson - Madame Fourcade's Secret War

Tuesday, March 12, 7pm
St. Louis County Library HQ, 1640 S. Lindbergh

Lynne OlsonIn 1941, Marie-Madeleine Fourcade, a young mother born to privilege and known for her beauty and glamour, became the leader of a vast French Resistance organization—the only woman to hold such a role. No other French spy network lasted as long or supplied as much crucial intelligence. As a result, the Gestapo pursued Fourcade’s group relentlessly, executing hundreds of its 3,000 agents. Now, in a dramatic account of the war that split France in two, bestselling historian Lynne Olson tells the fascinating story of a woman who stood up for her nation, her fellow citizens, and herself.
