By Peter Fitzsimons.
Nancy Wake was a journalist in Europe during WWII. After witnessing the horrific violence of the Nazis, she vowed to help rid Europe of them.
She set up an escape network for Allied soldiers under the camouflage of her high society life in Marseille. The Gestapo nicknamed her "the white mouse" because she was so skilful at escaping their traps.
After fleeing France she trained with the British special Operations Executive and parachuted back into France to lead an underground fighting force, the Maquis.
Nancy Wake was born in Wellington, New Zealand in 1912 and now lives in London.
