When Patrice Evra starts talking about Manchester United's "team spirit", he is usually up to something. Last season he ramped up the pressure on the pretenders to their title, Manchester City, and with Boxing Day's 5-0 dismantling of Wigan evidence that United have turned the corner of an underwhelming season, he did it again, claiming United will finish top of the pile come May.

Nancy Wake: SOE operative who fought with the Maquis and became No 1 on the Gestapo's list of most wanted agents
Friday 12 August 2011
Nancy Wake was the Allies' most decorated servicewoman of the Second World War. At the outbreak of war she was an attractive young woman, married to a wealthy Frenchman in Marseilles, but soon became involved with the Maquis and their sabotage and guerilla warfare, causing havoc for the occupying German army. The Germans made every effort to capture her but failed. By 1943, because of her ability to evade capture, she was code-named "The White Mouse" and listed as No 1 on the Gestapo's most wanted list with a five million franc price on her head. "I hate wars and violence," she said. "But if they come, I don't see why we women should just wave our men goodbye and then knit them balaclavas."

The wartime exploits of Nancy Wake, nicknamed the White Mouse by the Gestapo, inspired a television series, a novel by Sebastian Faulks and a major feature film, soon to start shooting.
