Jeannette Guyot joined the French resistance fighting Nazi occupation during World War II in 1940. Barely in her twenties at the time, she would take on many dangerous missions throughout the war, including helping to move fugitives, collect military intelligence, and assist Allied agents. 

Jeannette survived the dangers and three months of imprisonment. By the war’s end, she would be one of the most decorated women, receiving the Legion of Honour and American Distinguished Service Cross amongst her honors.
