Wine & War
Lisa's Pick: Compelling stories of hope and resilience as French winemakers grapple with Germany’s occupation during WWII.
In their book, Wine & War: The French, the Nazis and the Battle for France's Greatest Treasure, husband-and-wife journalists, Don and Petie Kladstrup, recount the dangerous and daring exploits of those who fought to keep France's greatest treasure – aka wine – out of the hands of the Nazis.
