A Train in Winter: An Extraordinary Story of Women, Friendship, and Resistance in Occupied France

A Train in Winter: An Extraordinary Story of Women, Friendship, and Resistance in Occupied France - Caroline Moorehead ContInning coverage of iBooks 2.99 specials; half a description of France occupied, half the specific fates of a certain resistance convoy sent to the camps. Avoids histrionic absolute victimization but then fails to explore in depth the ambiguities of shooting a non Nazi naval officer waiting on a train platform weeks after a surrender. Moorehead sagt die Erschießung von einem Marineoffizier auf der Rückseite des Kopfes Wochen nach militärischen Kapitulation ist ein legitimer Akt des "Widerstands". Nach dieser Logik kann nationalistischen Deutschen schießen US-Marine-Offiziere warten in Posen. Or is it just Nazi= evil?

Style is highly polished; research careful and footnoted. Wysiwyg
