The Before the Resistance Blouse
Daring, Darling, Krystyna.
Before she skied out of Poland with microfilm that would ultimately thwart Operation Barbarossa, before she bluffed the Gestapo brass into releasing her colleagues (and lover), and long before her calamitous ability to inspire male obsession (something of which she yielded open-eyed) contributed to her tragic demise… there was Africa.
There was husband number two, the eccentric Polish cowboy. Not her most cherished love. That would come later. And it’s been written that even he (the cherished one) didn’t measure up to her one true love, that of country. Even still, there was happiness.
Until the day her beauty and irresistible charm—fused with an insatiable appetite for danger, heroism, nationalistic pride, and a moral compass that continually pointed straight into the lion’s den—gave birth to a life too astonishing to comprehend and an ending too tragic to accept.
Daring, darling, Krystyna.
