Amazing story, very well told in this 1987 miniseries
16 August 2015 | by MajorAndersLassenSee all my reviews

First of all, Noni Hazlehurst did an outstanding job in this miniseries! Secondly, I am very surprised to see no other reviews here, considering this is such an amazing story. It tells the true story of a very brave Australian woman who worked alongside the French resistance as part of the Special Operations Executive (SOE) against the Nazis during WW2. Nancy Wake became known as the White Mouse by the Gestapo and was at the top of their most wanted list. She once rode a bicycle 250 miles in 72 hours on a round trip through German-held territory to collect a radio in order to request supplies from the British for the resistance.

After the war, she was awarded several medals for her distinguished service, and continued to work for British intelligence after the war.

I thoroughly enjoyed this miniseries and highly recommend it to those interested in anything WW2. 9/10 from me.
