Wine and War: The French, the Nazis, and the Battle for France's Greatest Treasure...A great book to thumb through...
I came across this paperback. over the spring and it's quite a read. Check it out if you can find it. It's called; Wine and War: The French, the Nazis, and the Battle for France's Greatest Treasure.
The synopsis is...
France fell to the Nazis and almost immediately the German army began a campaign of pillaging one of the assets the French hold most dear: their wine. Like others in the French Resistance, winemakers mobilized to oppose their occupiers, but the tale of their extraordinary efforts has remained largely unknown–until now.
The book came out in 2002.
This is the thrilling and harrowing story of the French wine producers who undertook ingenious, daring measures to save their cherished crops and bottles as the Germans closed in on them. Wine and War illuminates a compelling, little-known chapter of history, and stands as a tribute to extraordinary individuals who waged a battle that, in a very real way, saved the spirit of France.
It's a good book to thumb through as well. It's like an adventure story and fits in good with other World War II books.
