    Gripping True Story of Occupied France in 1943

    This is a true story about an American citizen and her best friend, a British citizen, who risked their lives to help British soldiers and pilots escape occupied France before America joined the war. It was initially written with real names and locations once Mrs. Shiber managed to get back to America and write it. When the publisher realized the life and death ramifications, should the book get into the hands of the Nazi's, the names were then changed and all copies destroyed. Harrowing, gut wrenching and stunning in the naivete' of these two women, their bravery and ignorance and the brutal treatment of them and their co-conspirators by the SS when they were caught. I did skim the last few chapters but this book is well worth reading for many reasons not the least of which is the historical value.

    Actually they did make a movie of this book (in 1945) starring Constance Bennett and Gracie Fields as the American and the Englishwoman. It does not strictly follow the book--but what movie does? You can get it on Netflix, etc. My question has always been, is this really an accurate account, as it purports to be, or were some liberties taken in the interests of wartime propaganda and morale-building? Our fifth grade teacher read it to us when I was a kid! I wonder now if she skipped over the parts involving brutality and torture. It is a gripping read, that's true.

    Etta Shiber steals your attention

    I couldnt put it down. Etta's story is one that grasps your attention and keeps you on the edge. Her WWII story is linked to the the lives of so many people it's really refreshing to know that people will risk so much to help others. I loved it!

    Very good if you get past typos.

    I really loved the story. It is well written. The typos are caused by being copied. I think there is a version of this that costs which may be well worth it if they have fixed the errors.

    Many years ago, I found at a second hand bookstore one of the originally published editions, bought it, and  read it not realizing how special this book is. It was compelling and unforgettable. I heartily recommend it t to general readership, not just WW II history buffs.

    This is a remarkable testimony to the perseverance of one woman under the nazi regime.  it also speaks to the risks people took to free themselves and their country. Many thanks to Mrs. Sciber and all those who endured so we may be free.

    Very interesting

    If you are interested in reading about WW11 you will enjoy this book. The author was an American living in Paris at the start of the occupation and she helped many allied soldiers to escape.
