Description

An incredible eyewitness account of wartime resistance, and 'an astonishing testament of survival' (Ben Macintyre, The Times)

In 1939 Jan Karski was a brilliant young student enjoying a life of parties and pleasure. Then war broke out and his gilded world was destroyed. Recruited into the Polish underground resistance, he was entrusted with a clandestine mission that would endanger his own life in order to try and save millions. Story of a Secret State is his extraordinary account of what happened.

'Stands in the absolute first rank of books about the resistance in World War II. If you wish to read about a man more courageous and honourable than Jan Karski, I would have no idea who to recommend' Alan Furst
