“A male comrade-in-arms in the French Resistance summed her up as: ‘The most feminine woman I know, until the fighting starts. And then she is like five men.’ She lived up to both parts of that compliment”
Nancy Wake was apparently a really really interesting lady. My kind of woman. Beautiful, sexy, feminine (and a great dresser), and a really really ruthless (and brave!) fighter.
All the things that the NOW folks wish that they could be, but aren’t, in other words….
The sort of lady you’d like to have on your side, and the kind who would make you quake in your boots if she were against you.
Not my like that, in the world today. And now there is one less. RIP Ms. Wake.
ETA: Bayou Renaissance Man has more…
