The Last Secret Agent By Jude Dobson, Pippa Latour Doyle AudioBook summary

The extraordinary true story of one of the last female special operation agents in France to get out alive after its liberation in WWII.

Born in 1921, Pippa Latour was a covert special operations agent who parachuted into a field in Nazi-occupied Normandy.

Trained by the British as a Special Operations Executive, Pippa was lauded for her fluency with languages and her coding ability—both attributes she put to remarkable use as she posed as a teenage soap seller, often selling soap to the German soldiers, and sending back information via code to the UK.

Incredibly brave—Pippa knew she would be instantly shot if her cover was blown—she concealed her codes in pieces of silk that she threaded through a flat shoelace and wore as a hair tie. She bicycled around the region, often sleeping rough and foraging for food.

During her time in Normandy, Pippa sent 135 secret messages conveying crucial information on German troop positions in the lead-up to D-Day. Pippa continued her mission until France’s liberation in August 1944.

For decades, Pippa told no one—not even her family—of her incredible feats during WWII.
