WHO ARE THE "CUTIE COMMANDOS?"

A “Dirty Dozen”-style squad of women secretly battling the Axis in and around the European Theatre for the OSS, their cover being that of an “all-girl” band sent out to entertain the troops.

WHAT'S THE STORY?

SUMMER, 1942 - As World War II raged on, men and women of the Allied Nations made many sacrifices for the cause of freedom. Much has been written of how women stepped into what were long considered to be “men’s work” as the country’s able-bodied males were called to military duty. Women also served in the military in non-combat roles, never officially placed on the front lines to fight. While it is well known a number of women bravely took part in the French Resistance, what of those American and English ladies who wanted to serve? Why didn’t the Allies use EVERY weapon in their arsenal to battle Hitler’s forces? After over 70 years, PROJECT: COMMANDO CUTIES has been declassified.

Six women recruited by Allied Military Intelligence, led by VICKY CRENSHAW, tour with the Allied Entertainment Corps by day as an “all-girl orchestra.” This allows them to get closer to the front lines, where they cross into enemy territory by night to gather intelligence and carry out sabotage missions. Their liaison with MI-5 and lone male team member is LT. THOMAS HARDY, given the cover story of being the assistant manager for the Allied Entertainment Corps troupe. 

PROJECT DETAILS

MISS VICKY & HER CUTIE COMMANDOS #1 is a standalone story that sets the stage for the ongoing series. Work is underway and the book will be ready for July delivery.

Risks and challenges

Every project comes with its own unique risks and challenges. We have made every effort to address the most common challenges that can cause concern for backers.

* Rather than going with overseas printing, we are using a printer located in the States. This eliminates any potential delays that could be caused in dealing with the shipping or customs.

* Work has begun on the project with Jasen coloring the pages Eliseu has already completed. While we have given a delivery date as July, we cannot rule out a June delivery for digital rewards.

* We will be providing weekly status updates on the work through the process of shipping your books. If there are questions or concerns, they will be addressed promptly.
