Expertly narrated, richly detailed, and charged with drama, this history of the courageous Germans who stood up against the Nazis will linger in the mind well after one has finished listening. Expect no German accents here, no overtones of menace or impending tragedy. Jamie Renell's restrained, finely nuanced narration vividly conveys the dilemma of Germans who opposed the Nazis, many out of moral and religious conviction, nearly all of whom suffered imprisonment and death. "What would I have done in their place?" we ask ourselves and wonder what history might have been if one of the many plots against Hitler had succeeded. Renell's firm voice and steady delivery underscore complex questions of opposition and compliance, duty and loyalty that still sound in our ears today. D.A.W.
