One Great Heroine
21 March 2018 | by bobshearer711See all my reviews

This was a 2 part miniseries, it should have been done in at least 3 parts. Having read her biography, there is so many incredible stories that could not be fit in. One of the most amazing woman that have ever lived. In the film she takes a bazooka to a machine gun's nest, in actuality it was a Panzer, that she took out, after 2 resistance fighters ran away. Nancy Wake was total class under the worst of conditions. She would not allow a female spy to be abused by the fighters, but she had no problem having her executed.

The movie really grabs the relationship with her husband, with great acting and writing. A husband she would stay true to, even though she would not know of his whereabouts for 3 years during the war.

She led 6,000 fighters with a no nonsense approach that the movie could have delved more into, as it was done out of total respect, for here raw courage (killing a Nazi with her bare hands, but done out of context in the movie, destroying a Panzer, and pulling off a daring attack on Gestapo HQ's), and a natural born leader.

Did I happen to mention that she was a true beauty besides? Highly recommend that one should read the biography first.
