Resistance to German-led Axis occupation occurred all the way across the European continent during the Second World War. It took a wide range of forms - non-cooperation and disinformation, sabotage, espionage, armed opposition and full-scale partisan warfare. It is an important element in the experience and the national memory of the peoples who found themselves under Axis government and control. For over thirty years there has been no systematic attempt to give readers a panoramic yet detailed view of the make-up, actions and impact of resistance movements from Scandinavia down to Greece and from France through to Russia. This authoritative and accessible survey, written by a group of the leading experts in the field, provides a reliable, in-depth, up-to-date account of the resistance in each region and country along with an assessment of its effectiveness and of the Axis reaction to it. An extensive introduction by the editors Philip Cooke and Ben H. Shepherd draws the threads of the varied movements and groups together, highlighting the many differences and similarities between them. The book will be a significant contribution to the frequently heated debates about the importance of individual resistance movements. It will be thought-provoking reading for everyone who is interested in or studying occupied Europe during the Second World War.

Product Description:

Throughout Nazi-occupied Europe, resistance took many forms, ranging from non-co-operation, disinformation, espionage and sabotage to out-and-out partisan warfare. This first comprehensive overview of the subject in 30 years charts the experiences of resisters from France to Russia, from Scandinavia to Greece. Accessible and authoritative, it offers a panoramic and detailed account of the make-up, motives, actions and impact of resistance movements - and of the Axis reprisals. It also assesses their often-controversial role in post-war national narratives.
