Female Spies

The recently released movie "Female Agents" or "les Femmes de l'ombre" depicts five women who were part of the secret world of espionage during World War II.

It put me in mind of other movies depicting women who "fought behind enemy lines" - Nancy Wake "the white mouse"; Violette Szaba "carve her name with pride"; Mata Hari - to name but a few.
