ID : 1477   
« back to classes page
Virginia Hall was born an American socialite. Unconventional in many ways, she wanted to be a U.S. diplomat - a position not open to women. After losing a leg due to a hunting accident, she was determined to help in any way possible to stop Hitler's advancement. Through the most unlikely of happenstance, Hall became the first woman deployed behind enemy lines in England's SOE, Special Operations Executive, during WWII. She helped to light the flame of French Resistance and revolutionized secret warfare. Although her face covered wanted posters, she refused orders to evacuate. Join us as we learn about this fascinating, heroic, and inspiring woman. We will read A Woman of No Importance: The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II by Sonia Purnell (Viking, 2019).
