really liked it
bookshelves: military
Read in January, 2012

I love reading personal accounts of war experiences. There was nothing in the way of historical analysis here, but the stories
were exciting and well written. The Danish situation was not at the top of the allies priorities, but nonetheless the Danish resistance worked hard for the allies and were an impressive organization. It was inspiring to read about the courageous men and woman who risked their (and their families) lives to save the Danish Jews (very very few were sent to concentration camps) and make life as difficult as possible for the Germans. Anyone who likes WWII history should read this book....it reminds us that there was a lot more to the war than what happened on the battlefield.
