The Spy with the Wooden Leg: The Story of Virginia Hall
by Nancy Polette
Award-winning middle grade novel (ages 10+)
How did a young woman from Baltimore, born at a time when daughters led sheltered lives and a woman's place was in the home, become one of the bravest and most valued intelligence agents in World War II?
Virginia Hall had a dream to become the first woman ambassador for the United States. Turned down by the US State Department time and again, Virginia could not stand idly by while the German army swept through Europe conquering country after country. She volunteered to drive an ambulance in France. She rescued downed airmen, radioed vital information to the Allies, and led three battalions of French Resistance forces in guerrilla warfare.
Known as la dame qui boite or the Limping Lady, she rose to the top of the Gestapo's Most Wanted list. The Limping Lady was the spy with the wooden leg.
