Description
Hundreds of thousands of Frenchmen and women carried out an armed struggle against the Nazis, producing underground anti-fascist publications and supplying the Allies with vital intelligence. This book, which touches on some of the strongest themes in life -- courage, self-sacrifice, betrayal and struggle -- shatters the illusion of a unified Resistance created by General de Gaulle and brings to life through eye-witness accounts a story of heroes and
conflicts forgotten as the movement became a myth.

A fine piece of work, illustrated with excellent photographs. SUNDAY TIMES
