Odette Sansom: Britain's Most Decorated Spy with Larry Loftis

Odette Sansom, was the most highly decorated woman, and the most decorated spy of any gender during World War II. She was awarded both the George Cross and was appointed a Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur. Her wartime exploits and later imprisonment by the Nazis were celebrated in the years after the war, but she has fallen out of the spotlight recently.


Larry Loftis has written a new book attempting to reinstate her as one of the most celebrated members of the Special Operations Executive, the British sabotage and espionage organisation.
