    "A terrifying and timely account of resistance in the face of the greatest of evils.” (Alex Kershaw, New York Times best-selling author of The First Wave)

    An enthralling story that vividly resurrects the web of everyday Germans who resisted Nazi rule.

    Nazi Germany is remembered as a nation of willing fanatics. But beneath the surface, countless ordinary, everyday Germans actively resisted Hitler. Some passed industrial secrets to Allied spies. Some forged passports to help Jews escape the Reich. For others, resistance was as simple as writing a letter denouncing the rigidity of Nazi law. No matter how small the act, the danger was the same - any display of defiance was met with arrest, interrogation, torture, and even death.

    Defying Hitler follows the underground network of Germans who believed standing against the Fuhrer to be more important than their own survival. Their bravery is astonishing - a schoolgirl beheaded by the Gestapo for distributing anti-Nazi fliers; a German American teacher who smuggled military intel to Soviet agents, becoming the only American woman executed by the Nazis; a pacifist philosopher murdered for his role in a plot against Hitler; a young idealist who joined the SS to document their crimes, only to end up, to his horror, an accomplice to the Holocaust. This remarkable account illuminates their struggles, yielding an accessible narrative history with the pace and excitement of a thriller.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “The question was often asked amid the ruins of the Third Reich: why did the Germans fight on for so long when all was lost? Those liberated from concentration camps knew the answer. Terror, mass murder, ruthless and barbaric persecution - all opposition had been mercilessly quashed. In Defying Hitler, Gordon Thomas and Greg Lewis show in chilling and vivid detail just how courageous were those who dared to defy Hitler. A terrifying and timely account of resistance in the face of the greatest of evils.” (Alex Kershaw, New York Times best-selling author of Avenue of Spies: A True Story of Terror, Espionage, and One American Family's Heroic Resistance in Nazi-Occupied Paris)

    “This carefully researched book challenges the myth that the German people were virtually unanimous in support of Hitler.... Defying Hitler is filled with almost unbearable suspense and drama.” (Booklist)

    German speakers beware

    The book itself is a fascinating insight into the bravery exhibited by many Germans to bring an end to the nazi regime.
    Unfortunately the rendering of German words and names, and there are many, is appalling. It astounds me that someone could invest the time to read a book and yet not bother to undertake even rudimentary research into German pronunciation.
    German speakers be warned!
