With the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, there has been a lot of writing about the battles, the soldiers, spies and heroes of the war. The books on this list feature women who played clandestine roles in the defeat of Hitler. They were “ordinary” mothers, students, performers, teachers and office workers with exceptional talents. Their courage, ingenuity, risk taking and commitment to a cause were legendary. Some of the books on this list are novels, but the characters and plots are based on real events and women. You will be on the edge of your seat as you follow their adventures and efforts to win the war against Hitler.
