While WWII raged across Europe, they fought not for fame or glory, but for their families, their friends, their neighbors, and their countries . . . As the Allies fought the Axis powers inch by bloody inch over Fortress Europa-from Scandinavia down to Greece, and from France all the way to Russia-another war was waged by collections of rag-tag locals who refused to give in to their oppressors: the Resistance. Their methods took many forms, from noncooperation to sabotage, espionage, and armed opposition. They fought with weapons, will, and a spirit that gave hope to both their countrymen and the impending liberating forces. Hitler's Europe Ablaze offers a panoramic yet detailed view of the make-up, actions, and impact of the various resistance movements in World War II. This authoritative and accessible survey, written by a group of the leading experts in the field, provides gripping, factual accounts of the resistance in each region, along with an assessment of its effectiveness and of the Axis reaction to it.
