  • "Fighters in the Shadows:" is it a worthwhile read?

    I've as of late been considering picking up a copy of Robert Gildea's new book "Fighters in the Shadows," which is presented as a 'groundbreaking' and more 'comprehensive' examination of France and the French Resistance during World War II. Based on what I could gather, Gildea claims the extent of collaborationism, factionalism, and sympathy for communism was far greater than is commonly recognized, even within the Maquis.

    If anyone here has the book, is it a worthwhile read, or an I better off spending the 35 dollars elsewhere?
