This is a 28 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - Female Spies of World War II. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
While women are still officially not allowed in combat in almost all nations, there is a long history of female involvement in warfare, even in ancient times. Espionage knows no gender and in fact being female could provide less suspicion and a better cover.
There is extensive documentation of the role of women undercover and otherwise involved in intelligence work in both of the two world wars and some very interesting characters emerge from those 2 conflicts. Their accomplishment are the “stuff” of heroes and vital contributions to the overall war efforts!
The 2 main oversight organizations that were responsible for in the intelligence activities in World War II for the Allies were the British SOE, or Special Operations Executive, and the American OSS, or Office of Strategic Services. In addition to traditional spies, these organizations employed many ordinary men and women to covertly provide information about strategic locations and activities while leading apparently normal lives.
They were military women, journalists, cooks, actresses and ordinary people caught up in extraordinary times. Their stories demonstrate that they were ordinary women of extraordinary courage and inventiveness who helped to change the world with their work.
The presentation covers the following:
