This is a gripping, moving and important book from the superb historian, Clare Mulley. It is the hitherto untold story of a fearless resistance fighter in World War Two, Elzbieta Zawacka. Having reached London after the fall of Poland, she joined the elite Special Forces known as the Silent Unseen and was parachuted into Nazi Europe. Elzbieta took a leading role in the Warsaw Uprising and the liberation of Poland but was imprisoned by the post-war Communist regime and her remarkable story was buried for decades. Clare Mulley brings brilliantly back to life this neglected story of female heroism and secret derring-do.
