“Eltscher’s strength lies in his almost encyclopedic overview of all the major, and many minor acts of German resistance…. An accessible, yet comprehensive, analysis,” Kirkus Review said.

Little is widely known about the groups of anti-Nazi Germans who were willing to risk their lives to eliminate the evil presence in their midst during the WWI and WWII eras. In “Traitors or Patriots? A Story of the German Anti-Nazi Resistance,” Louis R. Eltscher details the rise of anti-Nazi activity in Germany, different types of resistance groups, their key figures, and the moral issues they faced in their fight against this evil.

Eltscher’s ethnic heritage is almost exclusively German. Hence, as a young teenager growing up during World War II, he was profoundly impacted by the negativity associated with the word ‘German.' This experience led to a life-long study and teaching career devoted to German history and the Anti-Nazi resistance. He hopes this book will bring to light the fact that not all Germans were supporters of Hitler and the Nazi party.

“’Traitors or Patriots?’ is an excellent and exceptionally detailed book for anyone who wishes to know more about the establishment and decimation of the Nazi regime,” Pacific Book Review noted.

“Eltscher’s strength lies in his almost encyclopedic overview of all the major, and many minor acts of German resistance…. An accessible, yet comprehensive, analysis,” Kirkus Review said.

With extensive information and facts, weaved into interesting narratives following specific people and their stories, readers will enjoy “Traitors or Patriots?” and the little-known stories it brings to light.
