THE SMILING REBEL

In a well fictionized biography imagination has provided the emotional reactions, the family relations, the agonizing weighing of decision as Belle Boyd of Martinsburg undertook the role that was to make her famous as a Confederate spy. The body of the story stands on its own as factual reporting of successive events, and if romance is played up beyond the limitation of evidence, the final impression is of an authentic portrait.
