"The national heroines of human conflict"
Spies And Angels looks at iconic wartime women - archetypal "femme fatale" Mata Hari, and nun-like Florence Nightingale, the selfless field nurse, in addition to such formidable pioneers as medic Mabel Stobart and nurse Edith Cavell, famously executed during the Second World War for espionage. As technology began to change the world around us, so women's roles adapted in both medicine and counterintelligence.
