    While I think this brief collection of three essays is good, I truly don’t think it is worth the price tag. The title is also somewhat misleading. Both Christine Granville and Noor Khan have had plenty written about them. Granville has two books just about her, Khan has one biography and both women appear in any discussion or history of SOE. It’s a good introduction, but there are better books out there about the same subject. See the series published by Chicago University Press for instance.

    When I downloaded this book I didn’t notice it had less than fifty pages! It only tells brief stories of three women, all of whom I have read about numerous times before so I certainly wouldn’t consider them ‘forgotten’ heroes. Two of the three, Noor Inayat Khan and Christine Granville (Krystyna Skarbek) are very well known indeed! The title of the book even says ‘untold stories’ which is a ridiculous untruth. The book finishes with the words “The End” which is reminiscent of a story written by a When I downloaded this book I didn’t notice it had less than fifty pages!

    Written well depicted women as strong , brave, and beautiful despite the dangerous jobs they had to perform with excellence and on their own with very little or no input from man. However worked beside them with awesome strengths and no fear.

    I might have ranked this book higher, but for some reason I was disappointed in it. It wasn't that what was included was lacking. The book writes about three women who were involved in resistance efforts. One was Polish, the other Russian, and the last was from India, but served the British in France. Only one survived the war, the other two making the ultimate sacrifice for their efforts. All in all a good start to something that seems unfinished in the book.

I know that the efforts of female fliers has gotten some fair coverage, but it would seem to me that others could have been included in this sort of a book. I hope that someday I find something that gives more coverage to others.

    If you're looking for the simple facts, then this is for you. Like quite a few of the Hourly History style books, you won't find stylish prose, elegant writing or a sophisticated telling of a story. The writing in this is, I'd say, school age level, perhaps marginally higher. But that's not a criticism: this is a brief look at three lives told in a direct way, omitting all but the essentials. Three female heroes of the second World War - no, obviously I've not heard of them given the way women h If you're looking for the simple facts, then this is for you.

Three female heroes of the second World War - no, obviously I've not heard of them given the way women have been airbrushed out of the retelling of history - but at least someone is telling their story. If you're looking for anything more in-depth, look elsewhere, but as a starting point this is well worth checking out.

    A bit torn here. The intention is very good (I could have done without -some- of the editorializing here and there), the writing quality is very poor and ungrammatical (and yes, being clear does matter.) Present-tense reference at one point to the Soviet state suggests that this is a reprint of pre-1990s writing.

    1.5 stars This book is more of an essay, featuring 3 remarkable women. Although the subject matter is interesting, not nearly enough time was given to each story. The writing was stilted and uninspired. Overall an unsatisfying read, but at least it gives a starting point for more research into the lives of these 3 women.

    Reads like a high school history assignment or topical report with a regurgitation of facts read elsewhere. Mildly interesting topic, but the book doesn’t really do justice to the women it highlights.

    Extraordinary Female WW11 Heroines This was extremely well told and not a story I had known previously. I was drawn to the book because of the author’s name and wondered what nationality Scott was/ is ? He may be a distant relation of ours !

    Interesting topic and a relatively quick read. Not particularly well-written—there are many grammatical errors and the writing doesn’t always flow well.

    3 women 3 stories This book gives an account of 3 women heroes whose acts of valor are the greatest. Some women become strong not by choice but out of necessity.

    Women are the nation treasures. It simply tells us the significant role the women can play in every single side of the society, and how much they valuable in life.

    I cannot, in good faith, give this a rating of even 1 star because it is a joke. This man is obviously passionate about the war. That comes across. But he stinks as a writer. I felt like I was reading an essay that was written by a 7th Grade student. Please do us all a favour and stop inflicting your poorly written opinions on the world. Get a different hobby.

    This is a short collection. A collection is a group. The whole essay was written like this. This is annoying. Like a second grader wrote it. The reader would be better off reading a blog post about women in World War Two.

    This is a short, but excellent reminder that women played a significant role in the outcome of World War 2.

    Too short The three stories included are really just overviews of what happened. The entire book required only about fifteen minutes to read.
