THE WOLVES AT THE DOOR: The True Story of America’s Greatest Female Spy Judith L. Pearsonnbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; (Lyons) nbsp; nbsp; The long-awaited paperback of the greatest story never told nbsp; nbsp; Virginia Hall left her Baltimore home in 1931 to enter the Foreign Service and went to work for the British Special Operations Executive (SOE) when Hitler was building toward the peak of his power in Europe. She was assigned to France, where she helped the Resistance movement, escaped prisoners of war, and American Allied paratroopers.nbsp; By 1942 she was considered so dangerous to the Gestapo that she had to escape over the Pyrenees mountains—on an artificial leg, no less. When she got to England, she was reassigned to France by the OSS, disguised as an old peasant woman. She helped capture 500 German soldiers and kill more than 150, while she sabotaged Nazi communications and transportation. Hitler’s forces were hot on her trail, however, and her daring intelligence activities and indomitable spirit defied the expectations of even the Allies until the very end of the war.nbsp; nbsp; Her story was ignored for more than fifty years, and now the paperback brings Virginia Hall’s story to patriots young and old. nbsp; “Judith Pearson does a remarkable job of bringing one of America’s greatest spies back to life. I highly recommend this story of derring-do and white-knuckles suspense.” nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; —Patrick O’Donnell, author ofOperatives, Spies and Saboteurs nbsp; nbsp; Praise for Pearson’sBelly of the Beast: A POW’s Inspiring True Story of Faith, Courage, and Survival about the Infamous WWII Japanese Hell ShipOryoku Maru: nbsp; “Inspiring” —James Bradley, author ofFlags of Our Fathers “A searing tribute” —Senator John McCain “Captures an experience almost too terrifying for words.” —Iris Chang, author ofThe Rape of Nanking nbsp; nbsp; Judith L.
