Rating: 7

Set in World War II France with D-Day imminent, a resistance cell attempts to destroy a key communications exchange in Reims. When the attack fails, Felicity “Flick” Clairet proposes a daring operation to return and destroy the exchange with an all-woman team hurriedly recruited from among Special Operations Executive (SOE) rejects and other unsuitable types. Opposing them is former policeman Major Dieter Franck, whose close ties to Rommel may allow him to overcome Gestapo incompetence and break the back of the Resistance. With the clock ticking down to the invasion, the team needs all their wits and assistance they can get in order to succeed in their critical role in assisting the invasion.
