9780140187465: The Moon is Down (Penguin Great Books of the 20th Century)

 “Free men cannot start a war, but once it is started, they can fight on in defeat.”

This compelling, dignified and moving novel was inspired by and based upon the Nazi invasion of neutral Norway. Set in an imaginary European mining town, it shows what happens when a ruthless totalitarian power is up against an occupied democracy with an overwhelming desire to be free.
