The incredible story of Jewish female resistance fighters who fought the Nazis - a tale virtually unknown.

4 stars out of 5

"The unspeakable is succeeded by the unthinkable in this passionately written history"

Batalion’s book is passionately researched and written with the quick-cutting thrust of an action film. (Steven Spielberg is developing it for the screen). If it has a flaw, it’s that at times her characters feel too much like one woman. They have a saintly, faceless quality, and though I read this book in awe of their heroism, I finished it having never quite met their eyes.
