memorial day 2011- a tribute to the spies

memorial day 2011 001Do you have your flag out today?  We do.    I’ m thinking about the spies; the good spies  during WW2.  This post is dedicated to  all the American, British and French spies who  did a big part in winning the war.  I’ve never thought about the spies contribution before seeing this movie.  I don’t know, just never thought of it; seems the focus is on the soldiers usually.

  Can’t get this movie out of my mind- Carve Her name With Pride.  It’s a 1958 movie about Violet Szarbo the British spy. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051454/     It might be on u tube.  Some clips of the movie are there, don’t know about the whole movie.

Violet Szarbo- (down below) the British spy who helped win WW2.  Died at 23  yrs old.  She should not have took that 2nd mission since the Germans tortured female spies horribly.
