"Alexandra Lehmann has substantial knowledge of the facts about Munich's student resistance group. More impactful, however, is how Alexandra's powerful narrative brings the facts to life. The story of how Sophie Scholl learned first hand about Nazi atrocities on both fronts from Officer Hartnagel provides not just a vital historical account, but an essential understanding of the German experience during World War II." - Nicholas von Moltke
