    When the Germans occupied Paris in 1940, Agnes Humbert was a respected art historian. Appalled by her country's ignominious capitulation, she joined with friends to form one of the first cells of the French resistance. Her memoir, only now translated into English, recounts their clandestine struggle, arrest, and her incarceration in a brutal labour camp. As William Boyd points out in his introduction, her candour, eye for detail and undimmed humour bring a terrifying ordeal vividly to life.
