Roland Philipps - Victoire - A Wartime Story Of Resistance, Collaboration and Betrayal

Roland Philipps relates the incredible story of heroism, complicity and survival about the charismatic double-agent who plays a major role in WWII – Agent Victoire.  Paris, half–occupied Nazi Germany in 1940, was also half governed by the collaborationist Vichy regime.  These were dark days for France and also for Britain, isolated and under threat of invasion.  Yet Mathilde Carre – codenamed ‘the Cat’ – is driven by a sense of destiny that will be her nation’s saviour.  Victoire is the story of a passionate, courageous spy.
