The British Special Operations Executive (SOE) conducted espionage, sabotage and reconnaissance in occupied Europe during WWII.
The Juliet Code focuses on the actions of the operations of the SOE to greater extent through the eyes of British agent and wireless operator Juliet (her story is told in real-time and reflection) as she is asked to explain her actions post-war.
Here’s the blurb:
Torn between protecting herself and the guilt of betrayal, she returns to the place she was imprisoned and tortured to find answers. It’s a thoroughly tense and absorbing story that’s full of intrigue, drama and historical detail, and I’d recommend it to historical fiction fans.
