What do you guys think about her role in the Allied War Effort specifically on the North African front? I find her story fascinating. Some people call her the most successful spy of all time. Supposedly she was not very "hard on the eyes" and used her sensuality to get some of the most top secret naval codes. I have not seen any blogs on her on this site. She may have been as important as ULTRA.....

I remember reading about her by her code name ``Cynthia.`` I`m adding some links for those who may want to read about her.
