Secret Agent

Another subject of Book IV will be British Special Operations Executive agent Krystyna Skarbek-Granville, an aristocratic Polish volunteer for behind-the-lines work in many countries, including with the French Resistance, involving amazing action and escapes, all executed with supreme confidence and dash, resulting in her receiving the George Medal, the OBE and Croix de Guerre Avec Palmes. After the War, she found difficulty in finding work and ended up as a stewardess on a ship, where she met a man who, rebuffed as her suitor, stabbed her to death in the foyer of a cheap hotel.
