This is an amazing and very informative book which attempts to give an overview of the role played by many resistance groups in France during WWII and how these groups related to one another and to the Free French forces based outside the country at the time.

Personal stories are related and the sacrifices made by members of the resistance are told to great effect.

I think Matthew Cobb has succeeded in producing a book that throws light on the Resistance in a way that has not been done before. A fascinating book. ( )

The next time you see Paris, imagine the public buildings draped with swastika flags, the streets crowded with the grey-green uniforms of the German army, the humiliation of Jews wearing yellow stars on their clothes, threatened with deportation and death.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The French resistance to Nazi occupation during World War II was a struggle in which ordinary people fought for their liberty, despite terrible odds and horrifying repression. 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. Based on hundreds of French eye-witness accounts and including recently-released archival material, The Resistance uses dramatic personal stories to take the reader on one of the great adventures of the 20th century.
