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!
