This book follows three Dutch resistance fighters - Hannie Schaft, Truus Oversteegen, and Freddie Oversteegen. During the war, these three women stepped up to transport weapons, messages, assassinations, and to collect intelligence.

Although this book was slow at times, the stories were fascinating. It is amazing how ordinary people can step up in difficult times and make a huge difference. The strength and will of these ladies was very admirable. They are true heroes! ( )

From Goodreads Giveaway, This was a very absorbing history of the Dutch resistance fighters as personified by 3 young women heroes of that movement. The cruelties inflicted on the Dutch people by the Nazis and their Dutch collaborators was unbelievably harsh, so many people felt no choice but to retaliate in kind, killing their tormentor's where and when they could. There is no right or wrong in this scenario, only the necessity of fighting back. The young women in this history did what they thought they had to do, at considerable risk to themselves and their compatriots. There was a price to pay, they became people they couldn't have imagined being before these events, and one paid with her life. A heart rending story of human cruelty destroying lives, even in a good cause against evil. there is no innocence in war, only a hope to bring peace (vain though it is.) ( )

I think maybe this story needs to be retitled to Three Extraordinary Girls. Nothing these young women did was by any stretch of the imagination ordinary. I’ve read a lot of WW11 era stories and I had never heard of this part of the story. So much of the focus in WW11 era novels is focused in Europe generally. The Netherlands suffered immensely during the war, with Nazi soldiers occupying the country for 5 years and the Jewish population being targeted especially viciously and suffering a 75 percent reduction over the course of the war. Most famously the Frank’s were outed in Amsterdam and sent off to the concentration camps. For Hannie Schafer, Truus and Freddie Oversteegen, their youth was not going to stop them from becoming involved in the Dutch Resistance. These 3 girls threw themselves into every aspect of defying the Nazi’s and they became quite accomplished smugglers, spies and in certain cases they would serve justice via brazen assassinations. Hannie in particular became notorious for her extracurricular activities and her bold, bright red hair. I am a WW11 buff, so I found this story completely fascinating. This is a must for history buffs especially if you are interested in WW11 era tales, but even if you are not this has a wealth of interesting information on the topic of Dutch Resistance fighters. Thank you to Netgalley for the copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Three Ordinary Girls was a hard read for me because I wanted so much to be engaged in the story of these teenage resistance fights, but found myself struggling to keep slogging through the book. I found the writer's style jarringly casual at times for an otherwise dry history. The formatting of the footnotes was problematic in the Kindle version I read and so much of the book was footnoted that I wasn't sure there was any reason to have written a new book rather than just telling people to read a translation of an existing work. I never really felt like I got any personal insight into the three girls, and the complex mystery of how their work fell apart so close to the end of the war was completely unresolved. At times, this just felt like a tally of their kills but with no exploration of the motivations behind them. I kept wanting more but never got it, and so finished with no more knowledge or insight than when I started. Sadly not a book I will recommend despite what should have been a fascinating subject. 2 stars. ( )

The events and people in this book are real. It's a bit Publish or Perish in much of the detailing, but it also makes the horrible real. The girls were socialists against fascists and the Gestapo were all about removing people and supplies for the good of the Third Reich. Scary stuff. Worse because it's real. I'm tempted to say too much, but that would only diminish the impact of this book.
I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books/Citadel via NetGalley. Thank you! ( )
