Synopsis

Noor Inayat Khan by Gaby Halberstam

Noor Khan was a pacifist, an Indian Muslim, a poet and children's author. During WWII she joined the Special Operations Executive and was sent to Nazi-occipied France as a wireless operator, transmitting vital secret messages. When her network was broken and her colleagues captured by the Nazis, she refused to abandon what had become the most important and dangerous post in France, as the last link between London and Paris. She was executed in Dachau in 1944 after being betrayed to the Nazis, and was posthumously awarded the George Cross and Croix de Guerre. The astonishing story of a true British hero.

Reviews

Noor Khan was an amazingly talented, courageous and versatile woman - pacifist, an Indian Muslim, a poet and children's author. Well written and engrossing, this is an excellent read and even reluctant readers will be encouraged to read by the quality of the narrative. -- Sarah Brew www.parentsintouch.co.uk the book is a gem of simple writing with consequential plotting, short sentences, chapters and dialogue. ...her nail-biting escapes are very well described.

About the Author

Born and raised in the sleepy town of Port Elizabeth in South Africa, Gaby Halberstam's passion for writing began at the age of five when she started penning stories for her family and friends. After studying English as an adult, she went on to become a qualified lawyer, a career choice she immediately regretted knowing that she'd be much happier as a professional writer. Now based in London with her husband and three children, Gaby has achieved her childhood dream and is a full time author. Noor Inayat Khan is her third publication for A & C Black.
