Avenue of Spies A True Story of Terror, Espionage, and One American Family's Heroic Resistance in Nazi-Occupied Paris

Review :

I learned so much from this compelling book. It was such an interesting story and while it was a lot of historic information, it was not a boring read. Alex Kershaw writes about the family of Dr. Sumner Jackson, an American physician working in Paris.

When WWII breaks out, and the Nazis invalid Paris, Dr. Sumner helps to save Allied soldiers and Jewish Frenchmen by falsifying medical documents. His family becomes part of the Resistance, and actually lives on the same street that the Nazis decide to set up their headquarters, Avenue Foch.

This book was just an amazing inspirational story. The whole Jackson family was so brave, and Alex Kershaw really made their story shine as it deserves to.

This book was a wonderful read and I recommend it to any history buff.
