Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'I only know from what I read, but the fact that the Nazis have to keep a huge Gestapo force inside Czech Territory is sufficient proof of the stubborn resistance put up by the inhabitants, I should imagine they attempt to trip the Germans up at every step, and unfortunately many of them pay with their lives for this. The news coming out of Cz. is fairly comprehensive, and this suggests that their underground movement is well organised. Cz. has been many times under the Conqueror's heel, and it is therefore hardly to be expected that they would tamely submit without a struggle.'
