Phyllis Ursula James. Nora Ó Mara. Róisín Ni Mheara. Like her name, the life of Rosaleen James changed many times as she followed a convoluted path from abandoned child, to foster daughter of an aristocratic British family, to traitor during World War II, to her emergence as an Irish citizen.

Learn how this Irish imposter became close to writer Francis Stuart, whose years in Nazi Germany led to a great deal of controversy.

Co-author Mark M. Hull is an attorney and Professor of Military History at the U.S Army Command and General Staff College, Kansas. Previous work includes Irish Secrets: German Espionage in Wartime Ireland, 1939–1945.

Phyllis, Nora, Róisín or Ursula? You decide.

This event is co-presented with the Irish American Bar Association of Northern California.
