Already a heroine decorated in the First World War, born Mary Lindell, Countess of Milleville, was one of the most colourful and courageous agents of the Second World War, but her story was almost forgotten.Referring to the spirit of Edith Cavell and taking the German occupation of Paris in 1940 as a personal affront, she led an escape route for French and British patriotic soldiers.After evacuation to England, a secret return to France and another arrest, detention, she began testifying to the horrors of the German term prisons and concentration camps.In April 1945, some 20 British and American women emerged from the hell of the woman – Ravensbrück concentration camp – which had been kept alive by the will and strength of a woman, Mary Lindell.She combines a passion for adventure with blunt discourse and consistently displays personal bravery rather than adversity.To counter German claims that they did not have British or American prisoners, Mary secretly pleaded for rescue and drew up her list of her apron pocket, compiled secretly at the locker camp.This essential list includes the names of captured women, many of whom were British military intelligence officers, the Special Operations Executive or the resistance of the French.Poignant, supported by first-hand testimony, Lindell’s list tells the moving story of Mary Lindell’s heroic conduct and the endurance of a group of women who defied the Nazis during the Second World War.
