Nancy Wake, who has died in London just before her 99th birthday, was a New Zealander brought up in Australia. She became a nurse, a journalist who interviewed Adolf Hitler, a wealthy French socialite, a British agent and a French resistance leader. She led 7,000 guerrilla fighters in battles against the Nazis in the northern Auvergne, just before the D-Day landings in 1944. On one occasion, she strangled an SS sentry with her bare hands. On another, she cycled 500 miles to replace lost codes. In June 1944, she led her fighters in an attack on the Gestapo headquarters at Montlucon in central France.

Ms Wake was furious the TV series [later made about her life] suggested she had had a love affair with one of her fellow fighters. She was too busy killing Nazis for amorous entanglements, she said.

Nancy recalled later in life that her parachute had snagged in a tree. The French resistance fighter who freed her said he wished all trees bore “such beautiful fruit.” Nancy retorted: “Don’t give me that French shit.”

"Resistance heroine who led 7,000 men against the Nazis," The Independent. (via madelinecoleman)

"strangled an SS sentry with her bare hands"

"too busy killing Nazis for amorous entanglements"

"don’t give me that French shit."

3 OUT OF 9 TIGER-SUBSPECIES HAVE ALREADY DIED OUT
THE SOUTH-CHINESE TIGER HASN’T BEEN SIGHTED IN OVER 30 YEARS
THEY ARE SKINNED ALIVE (AS ARE MOST ANIMALS) BC YOU CAN REMOVE THEIR FUR EASIER WHEN THEY ARE STILL BLEEDING
NO EXCEPTIONS FOR CUBS
SOME PEOPLE HUNT THEM BC THEY THING A TIGER PENIS MAKES THEM BETTER IN BED (I’M NOT KIDDING)
EXPERTS CLAIM THAT IF THE KILLING GOES ON, TIGERS WILL BE ENTIRELY EXTINCT IN 2022
