Summary
February 29, 1944: I am about to jump out of an aeroplane for the first time ... I don't care that every man is looking at me as though I don't belong. Besides, I'm hungover. And I think I might throw up ...In 1936 intrepid young Australian journalist Nancy Wake is living in Paris after witnessing firsthand the terror of Hitler's rise in Europe, firing her resolve to fight against the Nazis. When Nancy falls in love with handsome French industrialist Henri Fiocca, no sooner has she become Mrs Fiocca than the Germans invade France and Nancy takes yet another name, a codename - the first of many.As the elusive Lucienne Carlier she smuggles people across borders and earns a new name 'The White Mouse' along with a five million franc bounty on her head, courtesy of the Gestapo. Forced to flee France, Nancy is trained by an elite espionage group under the codename Helene. Finally, with mission in hand, she is airdropped back into France as the deadly Madame Andree. But the closer to liberation France gets, the more exposed Nancy - and the people she loves - will become.Based on the true story of an extraordinary woman who saved countless lives, Code Name Helene is a thrilling tale of danger, intrigue, unfaltering courage, remarkable sacrifice - and love
