The remarkable story of one woman's wartime rebellion

As the German Occupation tightened its grip on Paris in the summer of 1940, Agnès Humbert, a respected art historian, took a leap of blind faith and reckless courage and helped to form one of the first organised groups of the French Resistance. The highly effective network earned a tragic place in history as many of its members, including Agnès herself, were betrayed to the Gestapo and imprisoned.
These are the events described with electrifying immediacy by Agnès Humbert in her secret journal, first published in France in 1946 and never before translated into English. With self-deprecating humour and acerbic intelligence, she offers a uniquely personal and candid perspective on this dark and dramatic period.
