Overview

World War II was the most dramatic conflict in human history, one that was filled with great moments and achievements. The historical figures featured in this book include: Georg Elser, antifascist carpenter who made an attempt to assassinate Hitler; Christian X, King of Denmark, who stood up to many abusive actions from the Nazis during their occupation of Denmark, thereby gaining the respect and admiration of his people; Dietrich Von Choltitz, a Nazi general who understood the madness and danger involved in Hitler's plans and who refused to follow the orders of his leader; Carl Szokoll, son of a corporal in the Austrian army from WWI and who eventually married a Jewish woman and served in the elite forces of the Austrian army; Claus Von Stauffenberg, a German count who never approved of the ravings of the Fuhrer; and Jean Moulin, a young head officer for the Ministry of Defense during the government of the Popular Front and hero in the French Resistance.

“Seis historias de valor y coraje durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. La crónica heroica de los valientes que se atrevieron a enfrentarse al poderío aplastante de Hitler”.
La Segunda Guerra Mundial fue el episodio más dramático de la historia de la humanidad, pero también un campo abonado de gestas y proezas. Hoy en día, podemos decir que los seis personajes cuyas valerosas acciones han quedado reflejadas en el presente libro han recibido el reconocimiento que merecían. La Historia ha sabido ser generosa con ellos. Sin embargo, fueron muchos más los que dijeron «no» a Hitler y cuyos nombres han sido barridos por el viento de la historia: miles de personas que fueron enviadas a los campos de concentración resistieron hasta el fin de sus fuerzas en un último acto de reafirmación personal ante la tiranía. Es para todos ellos, este homenaje que Jesús Hernández relata con veracidad y precisión, con un estilo directo en que aúna rigor histórico y amenidad, ideal tanto para quienes conocen los entresijos de este dramático episodio de la historia como para los que se acercan por primera vez a él.
Los personajes de los que se habla en este ensayo son:  Georg Elser, carpintero. Cristián X, rey de Dinamarca. Dietrich Von Choltitz, general del ejército nazi. Carl Szokoll, hijo de un cabo del ejército austriaco, casado con una mujer de origen judío, y miembro  de un cuerpo de élite del ejército austriaco. Claus Von Stauffenberg, conde alemán.  Jean Moulin, joven  jefe de gabinete del Ministerio de Defensa durante el gobierno del Frente Popular, héroe de la Resistencia francesa.
