A young girl [Gloria, our protagonist] with a penchant for languages, is equipped to join the S.O.E. [SPECIAL OPERATIONS EXECUTIVE].After a gruelling training she is parachuted into France to work with the French résistance.

A number of successful missions are accomplished before Gloria is captured. Here she endures great hardship and is sent to the Dachau concentration camp.

Along with a friend they plan their escape Gloria succeeds and her friend fails. Thereafter Gloria is determined to find her way back to her resistance colleagues in France.

It is not too long before she returns to fight again with the resistance, finds love and decides to seek out old comrades that she hopes have made it through the war.
