The Nazis hated the spy they called “The White Mouse.” This secret agent rescued hundreds of captured Allied soldiers and supplied the French resistance with thousands of guns and weapons. The Gestapo had tried everything they knew to find this dangerous spy. The Maquis were bands of fierce guerilla fighters who worked to sabotage the Nazi Army. With the help of direct radio contact with England, the agents in France could tell the British what supplies the Maquis needed. Then the British would tell Nancy and Major Farmer where the supplies would be dropped. During one battle, Nancy’s radio operator had to get rid of his radio and codebook so that it would not be confiscated by the Nazis. Without radio contact with England, the Maquis would soon run out of ammunition. The only way to alert the British and get new supplies was for someone to go to the closest radio operator and send a message for help.
