I have always been fascinated by the history of World War 2 I think it is because the number of family members I had serve during the time combined with working at an assisted living facility when I was in my early 20's where the majority of the residents were Jewish I used to love listening to their stories When author Frank McDonough wrote to me asking if I would like to read and review the book Sophie Scholl The Real Story of the Woman who Defied Hitler I of course acceptedSophie Scholl was a member of an underground non violent protest movement against Hitler's rule in Nazi Germany called the White Rose die Weisse Rose Mr McDonough was offered to read through the diaries personal letters written by Sophie and the transcript of her interrogation by the Gestapo He compiled this intriguing biography from information gathered during his readingScholl a student who was 21 at the time of her death in February 1943 is a legend in Germany The White Rose movement which opposed Nazism by circulating thousands of leaflets telling German Christians that they had a moral duty to rise up against Hitler the messenger of Anti Christ The leaflets were dropped between 1942 and 1943 at Munich University In February 1943 when Sophie Scholl along with her brother Hans and friend Christoph Probst were beheaded in Stadelhein Prison Munich for urging German students to rise up against Nazi terrorOverall this was an excellent book The historical events described catch your attention The relationships between the Scholl children their parents and various friends of the family is touching If you don't like reading about historical happenings this book may seem a little flat when you read it I was looking forward to reading a great book about Sophie but to me it seemed that the first half of the book focused on her brother Hans and her boyfriend Fritz and what happened to them while they were fighting in the war

The woman herself seemed incredibly courageous determined and clear about what was necessary for freedom and she was ready to contribute her own life to the struggle She remained to the end faithful to her belief system Even when confronting her parents in the hour before her execution she was calm and reconciled And her brother's final shout as the guillotine fell was Long live freedom Moving and inspiring I didn't find McDonough's writing very passionate or engaging unfortunately He clearly was passionate about the story he was telling but was not a writer who caught me up in the emotion of the events The prose was too distant and dry for that I did like McDonough's final chapter in which he related his pilgrimages to the places in Sophie's life He brought himself into the tale and that was somewhat moving but he's not a great communicator sadly Also as I mentioned in comments the copy I had contained a distracting number of grammatical errors and word switches which ended up affecting the meaning in probably a dozen passages I had a copy from an academic press from the university library must have been uncorrected McDonough's tepid style and the grammatical issues kept this book from receiving a higher rating from me I look forward to reading other books about Sophie Scholl however

Sophie SchollLong with two fellow students from the White Rose resistance movement They had fought against Hitler's tyranny. Stand up for what you believe in even if you are standing aloneI've never heard of Sophie Scholl until this year when I stumbled across an Instagram post about her I was instantly attracted as though I was being pulled into her story I just had to find out When I received this book I stopped everything I was doing and started reading it McDonough did an excellent job in telling us her legacy how it started who was involved etc There were numerous uotes and facts that made it even interesting I ended feeling inspired by Sophie and Hans Scholl and the White RoseHowever I felt that McDonough was distant in his writing style It was as though I was reading an essay done by a student There were uite a few typos in the book as well Somehow with all the uotes in the book I still felt that we weren't going deep enough in her thoughtsStill a great book thoughLong live freedom
