The story of the French Resistance is central to French identity,
but it is a story built on myths. Not simply an effort to free the
country from German occupation, it was part of a Europe-wide
anti-fascist struggle, which included Spanish republicans, Italian
and German anti-Nazis, communists, Jewish resisters and Christian
rescuers. Robert Gildea returns to the testimonies of those
involved, asking who they were, and what compelled them to take the
terrible risks they did, bringing to the fore stories of the women
resisters, whom history has neglected. Fighters in the Shadows is a
vivid, gripping and entirely new account of one of the most
compelling narratives of the Second World War.
