Chevrillon, Claire. Une résistance ordinaire: septembre 1939-août 1944. Félin: Paris, 1999.

This autobiography covers the period between Germany's declaration of war and the Liberation of Paris. Chevrillon began as a messenger for the Resistance, then became a cryptographer serving under Jean Ayral and Paul Schmidt, liaison officers of the Bureau central de renseignement et d'action (Central Bureau of Information and Action, forerunner to France's modern intelligence service). She was arrested by French police in 1943, handed over to the Gestapo, and incarcerated at Fresnes.
