Un Village Francais, Vol. 2

It’s 1941. The war on the Russian front is expanding and the Germans are less patient than they were the previous year. There is intense pressure to expose the French resistance and the local group plan a number of assassinations in Villeneuve. But in the planning, Marcel’s new girlfriend is captured and Marcel is involved in the murder of a German officer. Hortense is engaged in a steamy affair with the local German commander and Lucienne has fallen pregnant to a German soldier.

Tensions and passions in the village are palpable and the horror of the occupation begins to fracture the villagers' trust of one another, just when they need each other the most.

This second volume of the landmark French series is gripping drama all the way.

“It’s a subtle, historically accurate but not unsympathetic look at ordinary people suddenly tested by war, defeat and enemy invasion.”
