Great, great account of Die Weisse Rose, the student-led resistance movement from Munich in 1942-1943. The book is a quick read and had a great appendix in the back with the six flyers the group wrote, as well as the draft of the seventh (the one Hans Scholl tried to swallow when being interrogated by the Gestapo). There is also court documents that show just how evil Roland Freisler's Berlin court (moved to Munich for this case) really was. After reading this book (and see the movie with Julia Jentsch), I know why Germans voted Sophie Scholl one of the most influential Germans ever.
