    An incredible true story of two women who smuggled nearly 200 British soldiers out of Nazi occupied France. Written by Etta Shriber, a widow of an American newspaperman, quietly living in Paris at the time of the Nazi invasion. Eventually caught and imprisoned in France, Mrs. Shriber was traded for the "hairdresser spy"- Johanna Hoffman. Her accomplice and parter in "crime", Kitty was sentenced to death. A truly remarkable tale that deserves to be told and re-told. Paris Underground was made into a movie of the same name in 1945 directed by Gregory Ratoff.
