Summary"In Letter to my Descendants Hitler's meteoric rise from utter obscurity to total power, his planning and unleashing of World War II, then dragging Germany to ultimate defeat, are juxtaposed to th e undaunted opposition by ordinary people. The narrative allows the reader a series of glimpses inside an active Danish underground resistance... Going from carefree boyhood through a cat-and-mouse game of resistance vs. secret police, dodging a death sentence to survive the ordeal of concentration camps, Niels Aage Skov finally served in the Allied effort to dismantle and denazify Hitler's Reich." —Book jacket
