A Life in Secrets: Vera Atkins and the Missing Agents of WWII - Sarah Helm

Erm, this is going to sounds really bad but I think I would be happy enough with a Wikipedia article about Vera Atkins instead of this "biography". 


I am not sure how much substance there is going to be to this book. Sure, there will be plenty to write about with respect to the SOE, and the whole mechanics of the missions during WWII, but the beginning of the book makes clear that Atkins destroyed many of her letters and other papers, photographs, etc. which would have been useful as a basis of a biography.
