About this Item

This French-born English housewife and mother inadvertently came to the attention of the British war office early in World War Two; they trained her in Special Forces and planted her in Nazi-occupied France to join the French Resistance; captured, she claimed that her supervisor, Peter Churchill (no relation to the prime minister), was Winston's nephew and that they were married; the ruse worked, and though tortured with a red-hot poker, neither divulged anything and they were sentenced to die and sent to a concentration camp; at war's end the commandant handed them over; she and her English husband divorced and she wed Churchill, though this too didn't last. IPS, heavy stock 4 3/4" X 6½", n.p., n.y. Fine. Superb half-length informal portrait of Hallowes in later years in formal attire, sporting a chestful of the many medals she was awarded. In a light area near the center, she boldly inscribes and signs in blue ballpoint: "With best wishes / Odette Hallowes.". Bookseller Inventory # 40524
