Summary

This is the astonishing true story of three teenage Dutch girls, Hannie Schaft and sisters Truus and Freddie Oversteegen, that has inspired many throughout the world. When Nazi Germany invaded the Netherlands in World War II, these girls took up arms against the enemy by seducing high-ranking Nazi officers, luring them into the woods and killing them. They provided Jewish children with safe houses and gathered vital intelligence for the resistance. They did what they did "because it had to be done". Above all, they tried to remain human in inhuman circumstances. Hannie Schaft was executed by the Nazis three weeks before the end of the war and became the icon of female Dutch resistance. Truus and Freddie Oversteegen survived the war, but were forever haunted by the demons of their past.

Story about bravery!

I grew up in Holland and remember the stories my parents told me about WW2. I recognized the town and streets that were mentioned in this book. A story about incredible bravery and courage! For me personally this would have been a better read with a book versus audible. I couldn't help getting a bit annoyed by the narrator trying her hardest to pronounce the dutch names of people involved and the streets of Haarlem.

Interesting story, too but short

This is an interesting story about heroines in occupied Netherlands. It is a short book and therefore missing details that might be interesting.

The narrator is ok, however due to her not speaking Dutch she pronouns the Dutch words in an awkward manner which is a shame.

Amazing story

This is just a wonderful history. I knew nothing about these events before I picked this up, and over and over I wondered "Why isn't this a movie?!" Nicely written, well researched -- just read this book.
