#97 - 'Christine Granville' - The Fall of a Forgotten Hero

On the evening of Sunday 15th June 1952, just inside the front-door of the Shelbourne Hotel at 1 Lexham Gardens, a 44-year-old lady known as 'Christine Granville' was murdered. She looked like a nobody, and yet, living under an assumed name, she was actually a hero, a soldier, a secret-agent and one of the most amazing women who has ever lived. Her exploits were the stuff of legend, but being cast aside by a government who no longer needed her skills, her cruel death marked a sad demise for “Churchill’s favourite spy”.
