Publisher's Summary

"Free men cannot start a war, but once it is started, they can fight on in defeat." This compelling, dignified and moving novel was inspired by and based upon the Nazi invasion of neutral Norway. Set in an imaginary European mining town, it shows what happens when a ruthless totalitarian power is up against an occupied democracy with an overwhelming desire to be free.

my new all-time favorite

riveting from the opening paragraph to the closing line with no let downs between. perfect book, both in story and in writing style, read perfectly by Guidall. I can't believe this is the same author who wrote Grapes of Wrath, which I put down after a few chapters out of boredom... this book is nothing like Grapes.
