  • World War II Historical White Rose

    The Traitor by V. S. Alexander is historical fiction story of a young woman‘s life that is based on facts set in Nazi Germany 1942 through 1949. It describes small group resistance to evil and how she and other members of various groups including the famous White Rose made a difference. Harrowing details and experiences most could never imagine. The Traitor is written with characters who come alive to the reader. Alexander’s book reads like a true story because of the authors extensive research, study and understanding of those who were a part of the resistance and historical documents. This important book helps us to remember the brave people who fought the evil of that was the National Socialist Party. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. I appreciate the opportunity and thank the author and publisher for allowing me to read, enjoy and review this book. 5 Stars

  • Inspiring

    Stories about World War II have always fascinated me, especially those that are based in fact and tell the stories of ordinary people forced into extraordinary circumstances. Sometimes it seems like it was all of Europe. The Traitor by V. S. Alexander fits right into that category and I enjoyed it very much. Natalya Petrovich is just a student when things begin to get ominous in Germany. Her family comes from Russia but they have done their best to assimilate themselves into the German culture. However, as Natalya and her family – and many, many others – soon find out, assimilation for all isn’t part of the Master Plan. Purges and concentration camps appear, and many Germans just don’t understand how this can be and resolve to try to do something about it. Natalya joins the White Rose, the resistance movement of young Germans against the Nazi regime. Her job is to participate in writing and distributing a series of anonymous leaflets hidden in public places or mailed to addresses selected at random from the phone book denouncing the Nazi regime. Author Alexander does an excellent job of portraying the fear and danger, the dedication, the loss of friends and the betrayal of others. Thanks to One More Chapter Books Harper Collins for providing an advance copy of The Traitor via NetGalley for my honest review. I enjoyed it and recommend it. All opinions are my own.

  • Peaceful resistance

    historical-fiction, historical-places-events, historical-figures, Germany, resistance-efforts, danger, historical-research, WW2 This book dresses some ugly history in the finery of fiction. That's a good thing. Natalya stands as the everywoman of the German peaceful resistance known as the White Rose of underground defiance of the Nazis. Her family fled the predations of Russia coming to Germany and becoming citizens, but it all went from bad to worse as the Reich rose in strength and cruelty. She undertook hazardous tasks, tried to comfort the despair of others, and even found time for a little romance. The characters and their situations are all too believable as are the lessons from the past. The book is very moving. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • Well worth a read

    From the perspective of the Nazis the young German students who made up the White Rose Resistance movement were traitors and treated as such. During WWII most people outside Germany (and many inside Germany) did not know about the ant Nazi regime resistance groups, their cause or the sacrifice the students and other similar underground resistance movements made to try to bring attention to the atrocities being carried out by the Nazis. Only after the end of the war did the Allied Countries find out about those brave, driven heroes who willingly put their lives in danger and rarely survived the war. V S Alexander does a remarkable job of blending fact and fiction to give us a riveting, believable piece of fiction based on the true story of Hans and Sophie Scholl mixed with fact and fiction for their friends. This is a book for those of of us who are proud, loyal citizens of our countries and can’t imagine a time when we would have to risk everything to right some horrible civil wrongs caused by our own ruling government.

    Thanks for your feedback!
