Cowardice. Bravery. War calls to the best and the worst in humanity. Ordinary people answer that call in different ways: by finding their courage, by acting from the basest weakness, or by avoiding the call for as long as possible. An account of loss and reconciliation, collaboration and resistance, and the flowering of courage in unlikely soil, TAKE THE WAR tells an untold tale from the 20th century's World Wars. Based on true stories, including unpublished letters and diaries of heroines living and dead, TAKE THE WAR captures the Resistance roles played by women in WWI and WWII in France and Belgium. A new contribution to war literature, a story untold, TAKE THE WAR sheds light on the experience of ordinary women who attempt to navigate daily life in wartime settings, while finding their courage and becoming heroes.
