Double agent Nathalie oLilyo Sergueiew was one of several double agents involved in what was called Operation Fortitude, which began in 1944 and provided cover for the Normandy invasion. Most double agents during this time were men, which made LilyAEs experience very unique. Her goal, being French, was to convince the Germans that she was working for them, and then to convince the British to trust her to work against the Germans. Her goal: to help the British kick the German occupiers off of French land. This account is made up of material gathered in scattered notebooks and collected in order to recreate LilyAEs story.
