Andrée's war

£15.00

Product description

Viewed through the medium of her diaries, Andree Griotteray comes across as unpretentious, warm, brave young woman.  Her tale of life and work as an underground intelligence courier is shared by her daughter and makes a remarkable tribute.  Andrée Griotteray was only 19 when the Germans invaded France. Just another young teenager, in search of fun and frivolity, she suddenly found herself living in an occupied city, forced to work alongside the men who had invaded her country. When her younger brother Alain created his own resistance network, Andrée risked her life to help him. Through her job at the passport department of the Police Headquarters in Paris, she typed up and printed copies of an underground newspaper and stole blank ID cards for those attempting to escape France. She travelled across the country, picking up and dropping off intelligence ultimately destined for the British and Americans, always fearless in the face of immense pressure, until the day that she was betrayed and arrested.  Based on her diaries and conversations over the years, Francelle Bradford White brings her mother's story to life-the narrow escapes and moments of terror alongside typical teenager concerns about food, fashion, and boys. 
This signed first edition copy is in as new condition.
