The Saboteur: The Aristocrat Who Became France's Most Daring Anti-Nazi Commando by Paul Kix

Robert de La Rochefoucauld trained to join the S.O.E., excaped execution at the very last minute, and led countless sabotages, including putting bombs into bread loaves! All this before he even turned 21! Courageous and determined, this nobleman joined the Resistance movement, partly because of the bravery of his famous ancestors. Although depressed at times, and not sure whether he could continue, he wanted to help free his beloved country at all costs.

This riveting and inspiring book is difficult to put down, although harrowing at times, when the hero is questioned and tortured by the Germans. It would make an excellent series or movie. This is a must-read for anyone interested in the French Resistance! 

I received this free book from Edelweiss in return for an honest review.
