Rick Stroud reads from ‘Lonely Courage’

Author Rick Stroud reads from his book 'Lonely Courage' as part of the John O’Connor Writing School and Literary Arts Festival in Armagh on 2nd November.

As part of the John O’Connor Writing School and Literary Arts Festival, Rick Stroud reads from 'Lonely George'. This reading will take place in Armagh Robinson Library, 43 Abbey Street, Armagh, Co. Armagh.

‘Lonely Courage’ is the true story of Special Operations Executive heroines who fought in Nazi-occupied France. The fascinating story shows how each agent depended on the actions and judgments of their colleagues. Their individual efforts along with French counterparts and London HQ combined to great effect.

Among more than 400 agents in the SOE French Section, were 39 women. A third of these would not survive the war. Rock Stroud tells the story of 6 of these brave women. Their stories, achievements, and fates provide a personal and poignant look at this history.

Rick Stroud is a producer, director, and writer. As well as ‘Lonely Courage’, he is the author of ‘The Book Of The Moon’, ‘The Phantom Army Of Alamein’, and ‘Kidnap In Crete’. He co-authored ‘Rifleman’, ‘A Front Line Life’, ‘King’s Cross Kid’, and ‘Soldier Spy’ along with Victor Gregg. Rick is a trustee of the London Library.

Tickets are available on the door.

Come along to Armagh Robinson Library on Friday 2nd November 2018, at 5pm to hear more about the courageous women of the Special Operations Executive in France.
