Riassunto: America's first female secret agents were debutantes, Ivy Leaguers, wives of wealthy men, and movie stars. Bravely answering their country's call, they risked their lives in daring missions to help the Allied cause. Told here for the first time, these breathtaking stories reveal the bravery of "Code-Name Cynthia", "The Limping Lady", "Maria", and other female legends of espionage.
Review: Sisterhood of Spies is a real-life James Bond story, double-X chromosome-style. Here, though, the heroines aren't sex kittens in black spandex, but rather upper-crust women risking their lives in the service of a country at war. Elizabeth P. McIntosh was a reporter in Hawaii when the Office of Strategic Services (the C.I.A.'s precursor) recruited her to aid in its campaign of wartime disinformation. Fifty-five years later, she's taken it upon herself to tell the story of the women who served with her undercover--some of whom have also achieved aboveground celebrity, such as Marlene Dietrich and Julia Child. The narratives contained in Sisterhood of Spies couldn't be any more gripping if they were written as fiction: Nazi interrogation ordeals, daring escapes across mountain passes, expeditions behind enemy lines, even Mata Hari-style affairs. Ms. McIntosh's book is a fond ode to these women and a bravery that has remained unsung too long.

Book Condition: Fine. Black cloth with author, title stamped in silver on spine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Elizabeth Peet McIntosh (1915-2015) was a former employee of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) during World War II and later an employee of the CIA. Her memoir of her work with the OSS, published in 1947, was titled Undercover Girl and was republished in 1993 by Time-Life Books. A review of Sisterhood of Spies in the New York Times, published May 31, 1998, was titled, "The Ladies Who Lied". In his review, Donald Westlake noted "McIntosh does answer the question of why the O.S.S. was so elitist that it was known as Oh So Social. Its founder, William J. Donovan, ''was forced to build his organization from scratch, with little time for tight security checks.'' So he hired people ''whose loyalty was unquestionable: close friends, business clients, club members, professors from elite colleges, linguists, established writers. This nucleus of early spies-to-be was generally drawn from the upper social strata. They in turn recruited friends of similar backgrounds, and thus the elitist tone of O.S.S. was established.''.
