How Resistance Heroine Nancy Wake Became Gestapo's Most-Wanted, and Eluded Its Net

She once topped the list of the Gestapo's most-wanted — and now the thrilling story of how the beautiful and fearless French Resistance heroine Nancy Wake famously slipped through the net cast by the Nazi's secret police comes to Newsmax TV.

In "Nancy Wake: Gestapo's Most Wanted," set to air on Saturday, Nov. 14 at 8 p.m./ET, the fearless feats of the decorated heroine of the French Resistance, who died in 2011 at the age of 98, unfolds — revealing just why she was hailed for saving the lives of hundreds of Allied soldiers and downed airmen between 1940 and 1943, escorting them through occupied France to safety in Spain.

The Gestapo code-named her "the white mouse" for her uncanny ability to elude capture.

The ruthless Gestapo, however, was no match for Wake, credited with leading a raid on Gestapo headquarters in Montucon, killing a sentry with her bare hands, and executing a woman she believed was a German spy.

"I was not a very nice person," Wake once admitted in 2001. "And it didn't put me off my breakfast."
