According to the CIA[1] the account published within the boards of this book is a complete fabrication.

In addition to the significant dismiss lent by the CIA, none of Leo Marks, M.R.D. Foot, E.H. Cookridge, Christopher Andrew, or Gordon Thomas; all trustworthy authorities, make any mention of Josephine Butler. Neither is she mentioned amongst the permanent SOE exhibits displayed at Beaulieu Abbey, Hampshire, England. Her account is written in a manner and style that does not befit someone of the class and required acuity to work for Britains wartime secret intelligence agencies.
