Reviewed in Australia on 22 March 2019
I have a reasonable grasp of the history of the Second World War, but to read this eclectic collection of resistance and bravery was quite an eye-opener. I think that can be attributed to seeing the war through the eyes of the protagonists: perhaps a boy fighting not with weapons but chalk and paint, lovers in a Warsaw ghetto, a young woman unwittingly caught between Nazi sympathisers and the French resistance, or another searching for her father behind enemy lines. The surprise inclusions were a short story about the resistance in China during the Japanese occupation and the German invasion of Jersey. Ten fiction authors have contributed to this collection and I was impressed with being able to read about the same conflict from very different perspectives.
