A Noble Treason

by Richard Hanser. Putnam’s, $12.50. During World War II, a small group of Munich students attempted to rouse public opinion against the Hitler regime. All they actually did was to scatter anti-Nazi leaflets about, for which they were soon caught and beheaded, but their gallant last stand against barbarism deserves to be remembered. Mr. Hanser has reconstructed their story with great thoroughness. Illustrations, index.
