Meet Marthe Cohn, a 98-year old woman, four-and-a-half feet tall, whose unassuming appearance belies a bravery and resourcefulness that contributed to the Nazi defeat. Blonde, blue-eyed and fluent in German, Marthe, known as Chichinette, was recruited by the French army to gather intelligence from inside Germany, earning her the Croix de Guerre for her accomplishments. After decades of silence, Cohn is finally sharing her extraordinary story with the public. Following her as she travels the world recounting her exploits, The Accidental Spy is as dynamic as the woman whose story it tells.
