Available in Stock
Throughout Nazi-occupied Europe, resistance took many forms, ranging from non-co-operation, disinformation, espionage and sabotage to out-and-out partisan warfare. This first comprehensive overview of the subject in 30 years charts the experiences of resisters from France to Russia, from Scandinavia to Greece. Accessible and authoritative, it offers a panoramic and detailed account of the make-up, motives, actions and impact of resistance movements – and of the Axis reprisals. It also assesses their often-controversial role in post-war national narratives.
