Vera Atkins, CBE (16 June 1908, Bucharest, Romania - 24 June 2000, Hastings, England) was a British intelligence officer during World War II. Atkins was given one of SOE's most sensitive jobs - recruiting and deploying female agents. When the allied victory in Europe was accomplished, she went to Germany. Her self-appointed mission was to investigate the fate of the 118 F section agents who had disappeared in enemy territory. She succeeded in every case except one.
