Blisteringly sexy, she killed Nazis with her bare hands and had a 5…
Nancy Wake was the most famous member of the French Underground movement. She killed Nazis with her bare hands, jumped from trains, all while remaining unabashedly feminine. In one mini-battle, her car was strafed by German fighter planes but she crawled out of wreck, hanging onto her prized possessions: a jar of face cream, a packet of tea, and a satin cushion. She helped delay Nazis from arriving in Normandy by organizing local resistance groups of around 7,000 men.
BDM-Hauptgruppenführerin lse Hirsch was a member of ‘The Werewolves’, the 1945 Nazi resistance force working behind enemy lines during the Allies advance into Germany. She took part in 'Operation Carnival', the assassination of the mayor of Aachen, a wartime US collaborator. She parachuted along with five men into the outskirts of Aachen, found their target and executed him. She was eventually arrested, tried and sentenced to four years in prison.
