Hitler’s Europe Ablaze
A comprehensive look at the actions and impact of resistance movements from Scandinavia to Greece, France to Russia.
Local resistance to German-led Axis occupation occurred throughout Europe during World War II, taking a wide range of forms—noncooperation and disinformation, sabotage and espionage, and armed opposition and full-scale partisan warfare. But for decades there has been no comprehensive look at these resistance movements.
Written by a group of leading experts in the field, Hitler’s Europe Ablaze offers an in-depth account of resistance in each region and country, along with an assessment of its effectiveness and of the Axis reaction to it. An extensive introduction by the editors draws the threads of the varied movements and groups together.
Here is a much-needed book that fills in a crucial gap in the literature of World War II.
