Little Cyclone

The Girl Who Started the Comet Line

Book - 2013
Rate this:

A classic war history available for the first time in thirty years.

Andrée de Jongh was a young artist in Brussels when German troops marched in. She set up the Comet Line to smuggle trapped Allied soldiers and airmen through France and across the Pyrenees into Spain, saving the lives of more than eight hundred Allied servicemen.

Such heroism came at an enormous cost. Hundreds of Comet Line members died in the Nazi concentration camps. The story of the Little Cyclone is one of tragedy and triumph, a remarkably human and inspiring story that rivals the most dramatic of thrillers.
