Now that's an obituary

Blisteringly sexy, she killed Nazis with her bare hands and had a 5 million franc bounty on her head:
She could easily have been one of the sassy songbirds who brightened up World War II. But this was the face of Nancy Wake, one of that conflict’s bravest underground fighters against the Germans in France — and  certainly the most stylish.

A male comrade-in-arms in the French Resistance summed her up as: ‘The most  feminine woman I know, until the fighting starts. And then she is like five men.’ She lived up to both parts of that compliment.
Belladonna.  Deadly, and yet could grace Paladin's Girl Friday*:

 Truly, Giants strode the Earth, in those days.  God speed with fair winds and following seas, Nancy Wake.

Et lux perpetua luceat eis.  Amen.

* Maybe the best thing on Al Gore's Intarwebz, and completely SFW.

She's one awesome Babe.. and I mean that with the upmost respect.

Girl Friday may not be *completely* SFW all the time, but at least I give folks a heads up when she's not :)

Wow, haven't seen that many pinup girls in one place in I don't know when. That brought a smile to my face.
