The Moon is Down

by John Steinbeck - £6.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141395371 | ISBN 10: 0141395370

In this remarkable novel of human courage and defiance, Steinbeck celebrates democracy and the power of the individual against tyranny.
 
A North European country has been invaded. In one small town the people's initial confusion crystallizes into a silent, sullen anger that gradually undermines the conquerors until they too come to know what fear means.
 
The Moon is Down had extraordinary impact as Allied propaganda in Nazi-occupied Europe. Despite Axis attempts to suppress it (in Fascist Italy, mere possession of a copy of the book was punishable by death) thousands of copies circulated throughout Europe, bearing witness to the power of ideas in the face of terror and brutality.
