Journal Entry 1 by winghyphen8wing from Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Saturday, February 25, 2017
This is not an ordinary book: it's a BookCrossing book! BookCrossing books are world travelers - they like to have adventures and make new friends...and every once in a while they even write home to say what they've been doing.

WWII spy thriller: a group of women must try to disable a crucially important telephone exchange in France just prior to the D-Day invasion.

The invasion is a historical fact, but smaller-scale actions like that of Flick and her team are unsurprisingly less well-known: the tension in this story comes from not knowing what level of success the Jackdaws will have and what it will cost them.

The historic note at the end rings true: much of what happens in war could not be called "civil" and I can see that receiving a civil (rather than military) award could be viewed as an insult. Meritorious acts should not be judged by the gender of the person doing them...and the risks taken by groups like Flick's team weren't less because of who they were.

Here's another copy on my BookCrossing shelf.
