    The book “Paper Bullets” tells the true story of two French lesbian artists, known for their cross-dressing, who took on the Nazis on the British island of Jersey. The women left a series of notes all over the island in a bid to undermine the Germans, a move that saw them caught and sentenced to death. The author Jeffrey H. Jackson joined us for Perspective to tell us more about these two incredible women and why he chose to write about them.
