Three Ordinary Girls is the astonishing true story of three fearless female resisters during WWII whose youth and innocence belied their extraordinary daring in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands. Recruited as teenagers, Hannie Schaft, and Dutch sisters Truus and Freddie Oversteegen fulfilled their harrowing missions as spies, saboteurs, and Nazi assassins with remarkable courage, but their stories have remained largely unknown until now.
Tim Brady is an award-winning history author who's critically acclaimed books include Twelve Desperate Miles, A Death in San Pietro, and His Father's Son, a biography of Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. In addition to contributing numerous articles, reviews, essays and short stories for a wide range of magazines, newspapers and journals, Brady, a graduate of University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Iowa Writer’s Workship, has written and helped develop a number of television documentaries, including the Peabody Award-winning series, Liberty! The American Revolution for PBS.
