This is the riveting story of Noor Inayat Khan, the descendant of an Indian Prince who became a British secret agent for the SOE during World War II. Born into an illustrious Indian family and brought up in the non-violent Sufi religion, Noor seemed an unlikely secret agent. Yet she became the first female radio operator to be landed in enemy-occupied France, and refused to abandon her post in Paris in 1943. Shrabani Basu tells the moving story of Noor's life from her birth in Moscow - where her father was a Sufi preacher - to her capture by the Germans. Kept in solitary confinement for ten months, she was finally taken to Dachau and, in September 1944, she was shot. She was posthumously awarded the George Cross. Her last word was 'Liberte'.
