    Until very recently, scientists believed our brains were fully developed in childhood. Now, thanks to imaging technology, we know that the brain goes on developing and changing right through adolescence into adulthood. So, what makes the adolescent brain different? Why does an easy child become a challenging teenager? And why is it that many mental illnesses begin during these formative years? Drawing upon her cutting-edge research, award-winning neuroscientist Sarah-Jayne Blakemore explains how adolescence is fundamental to how we invent ourselves.

    The Special Operations Executive (SOE), set up by Winston Churchill in 1941, saw its role in France as helping the Resistance by recruiting and training guerrilla fighters. Thirty-nine female agents were trained alongside the men, learning how to disappear into the background and how to kill a man with their bare hands. Once trained they were infiltrated behind the lines. Some of the women went on to lead thousands of Resistance fighters while others were arrested, brutally interrogated and sent to concentration camps.
