Madame Fourcade’s Fun Fact #3


Madame Fourcade

For six months after the 31-year-old Fourcade took command of Alliance, she kept her identity a secret from Britain’s MI6, with whom Alliance worked, because she feared its leaders would never tolerate a woman as head of this large and important network. They finally learned the truth in December 1941, when, concealed in a diplomatic mail sack, she was smuggled into neutral Spain to meet with a MI6 representative.
