" This book is about a group of Jewish partisans who worked to save Jews from the Nazis in (then) western Poland during WWII. Well researched, with many first had interviews, this book contains lots of great information about the lives of this groups leaders, the Bielski brothers, particularly Tuvia Bielski, the oldest and group commander, as they worked as resistance rescuing and protecting Jews from the Nazi's as well as Antisemitism from the local Belorussian peasants as well as their Soviet allies. The creation of a community as well as a resistance force when faced with so many obstacles is an important one that isn't often told, and as this book demonstrates the leaders of this group were even forgotten by some of those that they fought to protect. The author presented a balanced and factual account of the Bielski partisans, however her writing style was a little dry considering the material she had to work with. "
