The destination for history

Female spies


Women secret agents and female spies completed some of the most daring and duplicitous missions in history, using everything in their power to gain information, and risking it all for a cause – or causes – they believed in.

Discover their real lives behind the censored case files, from Mata Hari’s disastrous attempt at espionage to Noor Inayat Kahn’s defiance under torture, and Vera Eriksen’s enigmatic role in British Intelligence. Each of these female agents should be brought out from the shadows of time, their missions analysed and their skills at observation, deception and intelligence applauded.
