Dr. Radomir Luza, the Book's protagonist, taught me The Diplomatic History of Europe course at Tulane University in the Spring Semester of 1975. I later lived in Europe for 8 years - 4 in Italy, 3 in Germany, and 1 in the UK. I also visited the Czech Republic (Prague, Karlovy Vary and Cesky Krumlov) later in the summer of 2006. This book is phenomenal! It makes you feel like you are living right in the midst of Gestapo-occupied Czechoslovakia and the later Soviet/Communist-occupied country. You will palpably feel the fear, anxiety, angst, suffering and terror that these poor Czechoslovak souls endured then. Dr. Vella has done a magnificent job of explaining Dr. Luza's personal events, thoughts and analysis of that heart-rending period of his life before he became an emigre, obtained a Ph.D. from NYU, and later taught at Tulane. Her clear diction and expressions add so much value to the book. This book helped me understand Dr. Luza so much better. I wish I could have read it back in 1975! Here is a poignant excerpt after an important reprisal episode in the book: "There remain, however, periodic inspections of the lonely prison of my conscience, my own Spandau, where I am both the security guard and the only prisoner of an echoing fortress. When I look into the section reserved for the gendarmes, I am reassured that I don't have to deal with Horner. He limped out, trailing drops of blood. Nor is Mayor Honza in my precincts, since I never went near him. Any time I check the rooms for the two men who gunned down my father, Kunderka and Mecir, I can always report that the space is perfectly clear. The sons of bitches deserved what they got, and I only wish Navratil had shared their punishment. They might have been shooting innocent wayfarers that night in the tavern for all they knew, might have repeated the performance somewhere else if they had lived, and I have no apologies to make to them. Only Sojka, the officious visiting gendarme, shows up in Spandau from time to time, reminding me that he, too, was someone's father, forcing me to explain to him again and again that I could not have left him alive to sound the alarm. "Why didn't you take me with you?" he asks. "Take you with me where? How could I take a gendarme to our [underground] hideout? You were acting like a typical collaborator. Why did you boast about your fascist sympathies?" "I didn't dream you were going to kill me," he answers. At one time, people might have understood the anguish of these interior disputes, but they make less and less sense now, even to me. Outside is a world of people eating ice cream cones, driving in traffic, or doing homework, a world where the sight of two dogs snarling and straining at their leashes terrifies no one and means nothing in particular. The long night of the war is receding, its intimate fears and fevers of remorse yielding to the sane, restorative daylight." (p.170-171) In juxtaposition to those years endured in the hell of Hitler, the affable, amiable nature of Dr. Luza that I knew at Tulane finally emerges in the end: "To assuage my niggling sense of disloyalty to both my countries [Czech Rep. and USA], I plan to apply to heaven as a dually patriotic Czech-American." May Dr. Radomir Luza rest in peace. I want to personally thank Dr. Christina Vella for her brilliant, masterful work in writing this book of Dr. Luza's Czech Underground wartime life. It is an outstanding work of history! I highly recommend it!

This book had such interesting facts about the Czech resistance during World War II. Although at times it was hard to keep track of all the events happening, it displayed what it is like to be constantly hunted...moving from place to place. I enjoyed reading this book.

As an American living and working as a business consultant in the Czech Republic, I read this book with great interest. It gave a lot of insight into cultural nuances and Czech responses related to their history and this personal account. It is a fantastic read for anyone seeking to understand Czech culture from a different perspective - every moment worthwhile and emotion-evoking.

Fascinating account of the genius of evil. However, did I understand that she believes that Israel alone is to be blamed for the terror in the middle-East? And are we to believe that America is the culprit in Iraq with the use of tactics learned from the Nazis? And are we withholding some kind of rights to the terrorists being held at Guantanamo? I hope I missed something for if this is her opinion I would not recommend her writings.
