The Dutch resistance movement during the Nazi occupation was bedevilled by treachery, betrayal and poor organization and support from London. Despite these serious problems, the brave men and women of the Dutch resistance who refused to accept domination by their brutal oppressors, made a significant contribution to the war effort albeit at a terrible cost. Their contribution which included escape routes for Allied aircrew and acts of sabotage has been largely over-looked.

While the author focuses on the activity and fate of her husband’s father, Henry Scharrer, her superbly researched book ranges far wider.

As well as introducing a large cast of resistance workers, double agents and Nazis, she describes many of the operations, successful and disastrous, and analyses the results. Too often, as in Henry Scharrer’s case, the outcome was tragic.

This gripping true account of extraordinary heroism and betrayal demonstrates both the best and worst of human conduct in extreme conditions.

Packed with interesting stories and information.

The Armourer, September 2018

At long last a good book about the Dutch Resistance ,it's part of ww11 that you don't hear much about very informative ,nice to see the Dutch side of things a good read.

Mr. David Leedham, Amazon

★★★★★ This is an astonishing account of the bravery of Dutch civilians and resistance workers, and a moving one. I'm glad the author has taken such care to record so much detail for posterity, it's really important that we never forget these brave men and women. A great book!
