The Wolfson History Prize Winner 2023

It is our great pleasure to confirm Resistance: The Underground War in Europe, 1939-1945 by Halik Kochanski as the winner of the Wolfson History Prize 2023.

Spanning the entirety of Nazi-occupied Europe, Kochanski's monumental history of wartime collaboration and resistance takes a profoundly humane as well as forensically analytical look at the life-or-death decisions being made during the Second World War's darkest days.

 

Resistance is impressive in its breadth, blending macro and micro history into a single narrative. 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.’

David Cannadine, Chair of Judges
