NIBS Underground – Book Launch – Fighting on all fronts: Popular Resistence in the Second World War

August is the anniversary of the end of World War 2. Official events are celebrating the victory of “democracy” and “freedom” over fascism and tyranny. But for the rulers of the Allied nations the war was never about de-mocracy or freedom. In some ways there were parallel wars: apart from the clash of imperialisms, there were opposition actions fought by ordinary people, mobilised by anti-fascist, democratic sentiments. Edited by Donny Gluckstein, the book contains 11 chapters on different countries. Four authors are Australian and they will all be present to speak and sign your copy of the book.
