The German invasion, conquest, and occupation of Europe sparked a civilian insurgency response never before witnessed in history. Understanding Germany's military and political failure is crucial in today's world, where unwelcome occupation forces, often in the guise of peace keepers, as well as invaders, attempt to maintain order in a world gone mad. This new book uses exclusive interviews with German and Allied soldiers and commanders as well as civilian irregulars who participated in irregular warfare, either as partisans or guerrillas during World War II. These interviews prove pivotal in supporting the records of both sides, separating fact from fiction, and finally determining the actual causation of political, nationalist, or even personal actions that destroyed a continent.
