Publisher's Summary

If you only listen to one book about what it felt like to be present during the worst time in modern human history, a time when your life could be snuffed out for having the mere thought of opposition against the Nazi regime, this should be the book. It is told by survivors and by one of the greatest survivors of them all, Jan Wiener.


What the Critics Say

"Jan Wiener's fascinating, well-documented book tells of the heroic exploits of various Czech men and women, most of whom paid for their resistance with their lives. Above all it gives a detailed, documented account of the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, the most gruesome of the Nazi murderers, by Czech resisters parachuted from London but aided in their task by the Czech underground." (William L. Shirer, author of The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich)

The true story behind the movie

This is the 2nd book I've read on the subject and is by far the best. Truly captivating take of a dark chapter in history that up until recently has been quietly swept under the rug and ignored by society. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
