    1. Most impressed The intricate workings of the Nazi state, with is rival cliques and paranoia , along with the complexities of a resistance cell with their own suspicions and tensions, form a fascinating background Like the fact that seemingly unheroic and flawed characters are shown as capable of heroic deeds, and that even in the belly of the beast, there were people determined not to give in to the Third Reich The ideological confusion and frustration that resulted from the Nazi Soviet Pact was [...]
