Struggling with my feelings here. Defiance is a graphic novel geared toward teaching children about the French resistance. The story encompasses a family who live on a winery in Vichy France. The members spy on Germans, put up resistance posters and aid French fighters in the forest. While I learned a lot from the story, I felt irritation because to have all members rolled into one family was incredible and unbelievable. It makes the danger the family was in less credible. The Germans are always stupid and fall for whatever lie the family members make up. Life was much more dangerous and this family would have been caught easily.
