If you want to read at least one great book this summer I strongly suggest you pick this one I feel as though I was transported to Paris to Avenue Foch from the beginning of the German Occupation and stayed until the liberation though in reality it was only a two day stay From the second I began to peruse the first page as I usually do when I get a new book I could hardly put this down Avenue Of Spies by Alex Kershaw has it all guts and glory horror bravery cowardice greed atrocity and heartbreak all with a backdrop of love kindness and most of all braveryAlex Kershaw s writing style is spectacularly simple but gives the reader an acute understanding of what is happening which is rare when I read history and is a sure sign of a good writer I have read uite a few books about WWII this year and this book by far is my favorite but it s not even the history that is riveting in the pages of this book it s the story of heroes In this tale Kershaw recreates the German Occupation in the City Of Lights His subject is an American Dr Sumner Jackson who lived on the posh Avenue Foch with his wife Touette and their boy Phillip Dr Sumner was the head doctor at the American Hospital in Paris and if that wasn t enough he chose to help in the resistance against the Nazis as did Touette and Phillip Even when they could have gotten out they stayed Even when things got perilously close in danger they didn t leave when the noose began to tighten on Foch Avenue and they were surrounded by the enemy they stood firmThis book is inspirational It could change a life It could inspire you dear reader to be bigger than yourself With the example of the human beings in the pages of this book you could be bigger and better than ever and aspire to do good things This is no mere history book though the history is appallingly real this book is about humans at their best and their worst This story is about real people who faced an empire and did not back down though most did The hunger the horror the power the Nazis held over France was impressively strong and Paris fell with a whimper due in part by what had happened in Poland but in the background there were people such as Sumner his wife Louise Marie Dissard Violette Szabo British Intelligence and other forces who where chipping away at the regime with the very real cost of being caught and murdered The Gestapo and the SS had sinister ways in which to capture those in the resistance such as the Funkspiel where the Germans would impersonate a British spy after taking control of a their radio In this way and others they were able to crack into the line of resistance fighters and gain valuable information It was a cat and mouse game on Foch Street and the Sumners never knew when someone would turn them in or confess information after being tortured Parisians left and right were either working for the Germans or had befriended themSo if you want to read a really great book pick this one This is an incredibly great story I can t recommend it I was literally stuck to this book for two days and while I wasn t reading it I was talking about itI would also suggest the Notes in the back of the book for further information and reading I also see that Alex Kershaw has written several other books and I intend to get them This is my great book alert for you There is no way you would be disappointed reading about great heroes in the midst of terrifying danger in the most beautiful city in the world during one of the ugliest wars in history
