The Fortress

Six weeks before Operation Overlord, a thousand kilometers from the beaches of Normandy.

There are no generals in the French Vercors, just a handful of men and women against the Nazi war machine. They come from Bretagne, Paris, distant Slovenia, and the villages up on the cliff. They have nothing left, no friends, no allies, no hope of ever succeeding. They are the Fortress.

A place of striking beauty, a crossroad of redemptive power in the destiny of a fallen nation. Neither Alix nor Marc set out to change the world when the war breaks into their lives. They reach the point beyond which life is no longer worth living, and stop backing down.
