In this episode of the Pen and Sword podcast from Stratfor, a RANE company, Emily Donahue speaks to Robert Mrazek about a heroine of World War II and her story of bravery, intelligence and remarkable resilience. The story is that of Florence Finch, a young war widow whose cunning subversion of Japanese rations during the wartime occupation of the Philippines garnered the highest medal any civilian can receive and saved the lives of hundreds of POWs.
