Britain, occupied Europe, and the brotherhood that helped turn the tide of war.

You wouldn't think that there would still be untoldtales about World War II, but Lynne Olson, a master of that period of history, has found some. Not only does she narrate them with her usual verve, but her book reminds us how much we unthinkingly assume that it was the United States and Britain alone who defeated the Nazis in Western Europe. Last Hope Island is a valuable, and immensely readable, corrective - wrote Adam Hochschild, autohor of Spain In Our Hearts and King Leopold's Ghost.

Lynne Olson is a master story teller, and she brings her great gifts to this riverting narrative of the Resistance to Hitler's war machine. You will be thrilled and moved - and enraged, saddened and shocked - by the courage and steadfastness, human waste and stupidity, carelessness and nobility of an epic struggle. Last Hope Island is a smashing good tale - wrote Evan Thomas, author of Sea of Thunder and Being Nixon.
