Fact: the Gestapo called her the ‘most dangerous of all Allied spies’. Find out what they were scared of! Sabotaging the Nazis. Capturing 500 Germans. Who’d have thought it of Virginia Hall – a perfectly normal young American? She didn’t look like a spy. But that was part of her genius. The Nazis had no idea who their nemesis was. Their posters shrieked, ‘We must find and destroy her’! After losing a leg in an accident, Virginia wanted to help the war effort. So she went to Vichy in France, helping to organise the Resistance there. With her knack for sabotage, the so-called ‘limping lady’ was soon on Hitler’s most-wanted list. But she always escaped capture, leaving the Nazis one step behind…
