A Hero of France

A Hero of France by Alan Furst takes place in the early years of the German occupation of Paris. The French Resistance is in its early days, covert operations are just starting and ordinary men and women are heroes by virtue of their willingness to take extraordinary risks to fight the Nazis. This is an author famed for his ability to recreate the WWII era with all its tension and creeping dread. The latest in his long series of novels will not disappoint his fans, and should bring in new readers too.
