Nancy Wake evaded any chance of capture by The Gestapo. The Gestapo called her The White Mouse.

It is a hot summer in France. Germany had occupied France, and there were checkpoints at every junction to check movements of resistance groups.

A lady came to a German inspection point in a cycle and questioned the purpose of her travel. She spoke fluent French and told them she traveled this far visit a relative in a nearby town.

The lady continued her journey with the same lie in every checkpoint. The lady cycled 500 kilometers in 72 hours for a radio set. The lady was Nancy Wake. The German secret police, or Gestapo, called her “The White Mouse.”
