It is Armistice Day and this article was a fitting way to remember a different World:
Once upon a time, long ago and far away, Wars could be divided into 'Good' and 'Bad'. In those days, WW2 was unquestionably on the 'Good' side of the scale. It is possibly the last War to have a place in that category, unless you toss in a few Revolutions.
Josephine Baker was an American Black Woman Singer who emigrated to Paris in the '20s. Talented, and Eccentric, there was no place for her in the US - Even in the Roaring 20s. France, and especially Paris, offered a haven for Blacks who flunked Jim Crow, and assaulted the Puritan sensibility of Racist USians.
When the War started in 1939, Baker became a undercover Agent for the French Intelligence Service. During the war, she continued to work for the French Resistance. This is an enjoyable read, and adds another book to my 'Must Read' list.
