Norman Scott - An Accidental Icon

The Untold Story of Josephine Baker’s Secret War

During WW2, Josephine Baker, the world’s richest and most glamorous entertainer, was an allied spy in Occupied France. This is the story of her heroic personal resistance to Nazi Germany.

When the Nazis seized her adopted city, Paris, Baker was banned from the stage, along with all ‘negroes and Jews’. Yet, instead of returning to America, she vowed to stay and to fight the Nazi evil. Drawing on a plethora of new historical material, bestselling writer Damien Lewis upends the conventional story of Josephine Baker, revealing her life beyond the confines of the stage.

Damien Lewis is an author and filmmaker who has produced twenty films about conflict zones and written more than fifteen books which have been published in over thirty languages. Sponsored by Eve and Michael Bonham Cozens
