“A story of love, incredible bravery and self-sacrifice . . . brilliantly told.”—Antony Beevor, New York Times best-selling author of The Fall of Berlin 1945, The Second World War, and D-Day
“A taut, absorbing tale of anti-Nazi resistance.”—Kirkus Reviews
Harro Schulze-Boysen already had shed blood in the fight against Nazism by the time he and Libertas Haas-Heye began their whirlwind romance. She joined the cause, and soon the two lovers were leading a network of anti-fascist fighters that stretched across Berlin’s bohemian underworld. But nothing could prepare Harro and Libertas for the betrayals they would suffer in this war of secrets—a struggle in which friend could be indistinguishable from foe. Drawing on unpublished diaries, letters, and Gestapo files, Norman Ohler spins an unforgettable tale of love, heroism, and sacrifice in The Bohemians.
