In 1940 Anne Sofie Ostvedt was a 20-year-old student at the University of Oslo when German forces invaded Norway. She wasted no time in becoming involved in the Norwegian resistance and quickly rose through the ranks to become the deputy commander of the underground intelligence-gathering resistance group XU. As a resistance leader Østvedt is among a small group of women who were top commanders of the various resistance movements throughout Europe during World War II.
