a bit about the book

Night of Flames paints a vivid and terrifying picture of war-torn Europe during WWII. It’s the tale of a Krakow university professor Anna and her husband Jan, a Polish cavalryman. Separated and forced to flee occupied Poland, Anna soon finds herself caught up in the Belgian Resistance, while Jan becomes embedded in British Intelligence efforts to contact the Resistance in Poland. He seizes this opportunity to search for his lost wife Anna. Through the long night of Nazi occupation, Anna, Jan and the ordinary people of two countries fight a covert war of sabotage and resistance against the overwhelming might of the German war machine.

Author addresses Polish and Belgian Groups

This was a fun but whirlwind week. On wednesday September 19th I was the guest speaker at the Chicago Society of the Polish National Alliance. My hosts, T. Ron Jasinski-Herbert and Conrad Miczko and all the Chicago Society members were great a great audience, a lot of fun to be with, and very interested in Poland's contributions to the war effort during WW2. A couple of the older vets were able to share some of their own experineces as well - always the best part of these meetings. Mira Puacz, owner of the Polonia Bookstore in Chicago was on hand as well to lend her support and help out.

Then, the next day, it was on to Namur, in Door County, Wisconsin, home to the largest concentration of Belgian Americans in the U.S. where I spoke to the Penisula Begian-American Club. It was a marvelous evening with our hosts Al Alexanader, Jim Lampereur and their family and friends from the area. My wife Janie and I were warmly received as we talked about the perseverance and courage of the Belgian people during the war. Again, some of the best moments came when people shared their own stories or those of their parents and relatives who lived through the occupation.
