    In 1940, 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. 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.

    What did you like best about this story?

    the facts


    Have you listened to any of Todd McLaren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    never heard Todd McLaren before, but found his French accents, particularly the female ones, rather...distracting.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was moved, but not to tears.
