about this item

Who was the enigmatic Jean Moulin, a man as skilled in deception as he was in acts of heroism? The memory of this French Resistance hero, who was betrayed to the Gestapo and tortured to death by Klaus Barbie, the infamous ''Butcher of Lyon'', is revered alongside Voltaire and Victor Hugo. But Moulin’s story is full of unanswered questions, and the truth of his life is far more complicated than the legend. Patrick Marnham, winner of the Marsh Prize for Biography, thrillingly tells the epic story of France’s greatest war hero.
