When it comes to espionage and spying, what often springs to one’s mind is a well-groomed English Oxford graduate with a penchant for overly-specific alcoholic beverages and womanising. However, what’s most important in these matters is the unlikely, and this is perhaps one of the reasons why some of history’s greatest and most successful spies have been women. This volume contains a collection of six biographical sketches of incredible female spies, each including descriptions of their unbelievable feats related to espionage. 'In Disguise - History’s Famous Female Spies' is highly recommended for those with an interest in history and intelligence, and it would make for a fantastic addition to feminist collections. Contents include: 'Belle Boyd', 'Lydia Darrah', 'Miss Edith Cavell', 'Despina Davidovitch Storch', 'Mata-Hari', and 'Chevalier D’eon'. Read & Co. History is proudly publishing this brand new collection of classic biographies for the enjoyment of a new generation of readers.
