Andrée's War, an engaging tale of heroism in Paris in the Second Wolrd War is now available. Andrée Griotteray White was only nineteen when the Germans invaded Paris but throughout the war she defied the Nazis, aided the Resistance and recorded her exploits in her diary. Now her story is brought to life by her daughter, a story told in English for the first time.
Andrée was awarded the Croix de Guerre, the Legion d'Honneur and the Medaille de la Resistance for her actions, but was always modest about her actions in the war. After the Germans invaded, her younger brother Alain set up a Resistance cell and Andrée helped without hesitation. Whilst working at the Police Headquarters, she printed and distributed an underground news sheet and stole blank ID cards to help mena and women trying to escape France. Based on Andrée's diaries from the time and conversations over the years, Francelle Bradford White recounts her mother's incredible story: the narrow escapes and moments of terror alongside a typical teenager's concerns about food, fashion and boys.
