Yes her problem was she tried to play both sides. She might very well have been playing friendly to the Germans, just to get better information, but the French threw her under the bus anyway. Typical move by the French who are known to burn their national heroes at the stake.
Both sides named her a traitor! When you get into that position, you are pretty much dead!
