xxv+213pp. Original illustrated boards - Dust jacket not called for. A series of interviews with eleven women of the German Resistance who played a distinct and important part in the conspiracy against the regime of terror. The attempt on Hitler's life led not only to the brutal execution of scores of conspirators, but also dramatically changed the lives of their families. The husbands are celebrated as heroes of the Resistance but little has been mentioned about their wives. These incredible stories reveal their courage and their later lives. Includes Glossary.
