Andrée Peel, a highly decorated French resistance figure who helped save dozens of American and British airmen shot down over France during World War II, died March 5 in the English village of Long Ashton, outside Bristol. She was 105. When France fell to Germany in the spring of 1940, Andrée Virot was running a beauty salon in the Breton port of Brest. She joined the resistance movement when German troops occupied Brest, and she began circulating an underground newspaper. Code-named Agent Rose, she soon became a key resistance figure in Brittany.
