SUDDEN COURAGE Youth in France Confront the Germans, 1940-1945

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michael David Axtell

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

The story of French opposition to the German occupation in WWII has been many times told, but this audiobook history of the role of youthful resisters--teens, young adults, even children, many of them girls and young women--puts the focus on those who were most idealistic and committed, and often the most daring. Narrator Michael David Axtell keeps a steady, active pace. His delivery is expressive and empathetic, and he maintains dramatic tension without dramatizing. The narrative itself is episodic, moving chronologically from stage to stage in the occupation and from one individual or group to another. Their stories are remarkable, often stirring and exciting, but just as often heartbreaking. D.A.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
