Resistance-as-disobedience continued, and indeed increased, throughout late 1944 and early 1945. And it had a more profound and lasting material effect on the war and its aftermath than did the military resistance culminating in Stauffenberg's attempt on Hitler's life. From the refusal to destroy Paris and key locations in southern France to the unwillingness to implement a scorched earth policy on German soil, disobedience in the Third Reich manifested in numerous ways after 1944, and ultimately impacted the course of the war by saving thousands of Allied and German lives, keeping supply lines open, and preserving cities and infrastructure. In a period of thorough and at times fanatical obedience, the few instances of disobedience against the Nazi regime become all the more striking.
Considering various forms of opposition across the Western Front, Disobeying Hitler is a significant contribution to the literature on German resistance.

Bronson Pinchot puts on a performance with every one of his reads. I’ve followed his work on Audible and his engaging style brings me in to genres stories I haven’t earlier considered. The story itself is an intriguing look in to both overt and covert efforts to sabotage Hitler’s regime and doctrines throughout World War 2. Some of the stories are quite well known, others, this is the first I’ve heard of them.
