Actually reading about these women at the moment, D-Day Girls: The spies who armed the Resistance, sabotaged the Nazis, and helped win WW II. Worth your time. Not mentioned in article or comments Andrée Borrel, Lise de Baissac [awarded Croix de Guerre and The Legion of Honor], Odette Sansom [received The George Cross], Yvonne Rudellat, and Mary Herbert.

Good movie about Violette Szabo: Carve her Name with Pride (1958) with Virginia McKenna as Szabo. Also has Paul Scofield in the cast.
