    World War II Historical Fiction

    Resistance Women by Jennifer Chiaverini World War II Historical Fiction is one of the best books I have read this year. There are are so many true facts it almost reads like non fiction. The characters, their lives and details are very realistic. I did not see any political basis with the characters no matter their nationality. Every German, Russian or American character was portrayed as human with good traits and bad. I was encouraged by the challenge that each person is responsible to struggle against the evil in this world.

    So Interesting, from real life event

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 This is my first read from Jennifer Chiaverini and I loved it! It is well written and not fast paced. This book covers the period between 1929 and 1946. It is based on fact. “Die Rote Kapelle”, the Red Orchestra or the Red Chapel was the name given by the Gestapo to a group of resistance workers. Their ages were between 16 and 86, and about 40% of the group were women. This story is told not only from the Jewish perspective, but also from the fraction of anti-fascist Germans who wanted to save their beautiful country from total destruction, at the hands of a madman. The non fiction characters are Arvid Harnack, his American wife, Mildred and German journalist Adam Kuckhoff and his wife Greta. They are intertwined seamlessly with fictional characters for the sake of the story. It is well written and well researched. The women look on with horror as the oppressive, violent and much feared Nazi Party, rises to power. They decide to become part of “Die Rote Kapelle”. It took me a while to finish the book, not for lack of interest but I was perturbed reading certain aspects of the book and I needed to digest the uncanny similarity to the current affairs in the United States. The similarities between Trump and Hitler are huge. The mob mentality of the people, in both time periods, is terrifying. I do hope our American neighbors and friends wake up in time to achieve a different outcome.

    Characters you wish you had known.

    If you are interested in WWII history and the role of women in the Resistance this is an excellent. Fast moving, factual and gripping.
