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.

Founder of "Comet Line" dies in Belgium

Andree de Jongh, who founded the Comet Line in 1941 at age 24 passed away yesterday. She was 90. During the war years, operatives of the Comet Line risked their lives escorting almost a thousand downed Allied aviators out of occupied Belgium and France and back to England so they could carry on the fight. It was the largest and most successful covert resue operation in Europe. Ms de Jongh was arrested by the Germans in 1943 and subjected to torture and imprisonment. She survived the war, was made a Countess of Belgium and was awarded the US Medal of Freedom. Andree de Jongh was an inspiration to me in writing NIGHT OF FLAMES and the Comet Line is an integral part of the story.
