Resistance: The Underground War wins the Wolfson History Prize

Halik Kochanski won prestigious Wolfson History Prize for Resistance: The Underground War in Europe, 1939-1945, the first English-language history of resistance to study the whole of Europe.

The Prize celebrates the best history writing in the UK from the past year, and Kochanski was named the winner from a shortlist of five other works. David Cannadine, Chair of the Wolfson History Prize judges, said of the work: ‘This book does more than recount the past; it breathes life into forgotten voices and untold tales of bravery, illuminating the spirit of ordinary people who challenged oppression.’ See the full write-up here.
