The author describes the weaknesses and corruption as well as the strengths and virtues of his contemporaries. The saga of those who readily joined the Nazi movement is balanced by an authentic account of the Austrian resistance movement, which has not yet received the acknowledgment it merits. Puntigam belongs to the growing body of literature devoted to providing an accurate account of the Austrian past, long suppressed or ignored.
