THE REPUBLIC OF SILENCE by A.J. Liebling

THE REPUBLIC OF SILENCE

KIRKUS REVIEW

A selection of letters, personal narratives, excerpts from longer works, which reflect the years of the French resistance in the words of participants:- what they thought, wrote, what "life and death were like". Moving material, whether in the hands of anonymous writers or in those of Aragon, Vercors, Sartre, Kessel, Mauriac- covering chronologically the defeat, the beginning of resistance, its ramification on all levels; the traitors and the martyrs, the reprisals and the massacres, the liberation. This is both testimonial and memorial. Affecting reading.
