This book has absolutely no story. I enjoy books on the French Resistance but even I was willing myself not to resist giving this load of nonsense up. There is absolutely no plot whatsoever from start to finish. After 6 hours I could take no more, even with just an hour to go. It is a dreadful audible read. Avoid.
Their was no plot whatsoever. Nothing happened.
Reader was fine. Far too many characters not actually doing anything.
My mind was a haze with a soup of forgettable " characters ".
Wake me up.
