I am very interested in history of the mid 20th ceentury. I don't know much about the work of the French Resistence and bought this book. Butthen I became concerned that it may be written by someone who was jumping on the bandwagon and claiming to have been active against the Nazi occupation, but in fact who had done little that was veryfiable.

Nothing could have been further from the truth. This book gives a most amzing account, not only of the author's braveness, but that of her husband and many associates. There really were some very couragous and active resisters in France.

And the book had a great personal side to it as well. As well as describing the Nazi oppression and French resistance, it gives an excellent account of life (and love and friendship) in occupied France.

A must read!

An astonishing story line no fiction writier could compete with. The story of a brilliant woman who displayed immence courage, conviction and love. Her bravery in recuing her husband is oustanding. It is easy to forget how diffiuclt and dangerous it was to be an active reisitant in France WW2. A special thank you to the translators who have done a first class job in brining this book to a wider audience.

This true story of brave resistance fighters in France during World War II shows the courage and fortitude of some French people who resisted the Nazi occupation of their beloved country. I have since purchased and watched the video (French speaking with English subtitles) that is based on this book.

After visiting the Resistance museum in Lyon recently this volume was most informative. Still fascinating nearly 70 years after the second world war how France still struggles to resolve dealing with its fascist history, anti-Semitism and deep rooted right wing politics.

Superb insight and stunning account of life in France during WW2, through the eyes of Lucie Aubrac whom successfully juggled her roles as mother, teacher and resistant. As the book has been translated I didn't have high expectations of the writing style or quality but I was pleasantly surprised at how exceptionally strong those aspects have turned out to be.

An excellent informative book., it gave a real insight into life in France under German rule. Also supplied facts about life - I did not realise how late women got the vote , for example.
