An SOE radio operator in Europe
Military / War, Historical
January 28, 2023
French/English girl is recruited into the Special Operation's Executive to be a radio operator working with the French resistance in Nazi occupied Europe.
Eighteen-year-old Collette’s peaceful life in France is shattered when the Nazi panzers steam-roll across her country. She feels compelled to help the nation she loves and joins the Women’s Auxilliary Air Force in England, training as a radar operator. There, her French accent is noticed and she is recruited into the Special Operations Executive to spy in France.
Smothering her fear and self-doubt, Colette undergoes intensive training as a radio operator. One moonlit night, she is infiltrated into France to work with the Résistance. Nazi tracking vans are out, using her transmissions to locate her. Her messages must be short and she moves fast after each one.
It’s a game of cat and mouse which Colette must win … every time.
