"Hitler's savage canary" de David Lampe

After Adolph Hitler made plans to create a “model protectorate” out of Denmark, Winston Churchill predicted the nation would become the Fuhrer’s tame canary. Isolated from the Allies and fueled only by a sense of human decency and national pride, the Danes created an extraordinary resistance movement that proved a relentless thorn in the Nazis’ side. German troops were stymied again and again by the sabotage of railways and airbases and some 7,000 Jews were carried to safety in Sweden. They were not soldiers—they were simply ordinary citizens who refused to stand idly by and witness an atrocity. The story of their selfless courage and daring should inspire countless future generations.

Narra diferentes historias de daneses que se enfrentaron a los nazis durante la ocupación de su país por Alemania en la II Guerra Mundial.

Es un libro algo árido para leer; de lectura poco ágil.
