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. Wine and War illuminates a compelling, little-known chapter of history, and stands as a tribute to those extraordinary individuals who waged a battle that, in a very real way, saved the spirit of France.

    " An interesting slant on France's WW2 experiences through the prism of the wine industry. Some great anecdotes about fooling the Germans are juxtaposed with stories that highlight the horror and brutality of the Nazi regime. More than anything, this book shows how fundamentally important wine is as part of French identity, life and culture. I found the reading of it was even more pleasurable with a glass of wine in hand.
