Nancy Wake - a real life WWII spy (born in NZ)

This week we have been learning how to synthesise when we read.  We completed the activity 'Synthesis Eggs' by Sheena Cameron.
While reading a newspaper article about Nancy Wake. We learnt lots of things about the spy nicknamed 'White Mouse' by the Gestapo during World War 2 such as:

She was married to a French man - Henri Fiocca
He died being tortured by the Gestapo, as he wouldn't give up information about her
She lived until she was 98.  But died 25 days before her birthday.
She was never afraid of anything
She killed an SS guard with her bare hands
She was the youngest child in a family with 6 children.
She was born in New Zealand.
