2-Book bundle-THE RESISTANCE & companion volume WAR IN THE WASTELAND
The Resistance begins in the cockpit of a crippled B-17 engaged in a bombing mission over enemy-occupied France, early spring, 1944. Pilot Eli Evans and his navigator Charlie Tucker will find themselves encircled by French Resistance fighters, SOE licensed-to-kill British agents, Abwehr German double agents, Marxist agitators, sabotage and betrayal, and coded messages imbedded in BBC broadcasts, including "the voice of faith," CS Lewis heard and hotly debated throughout the adventure. Essential book for ethusiasts who like reading about espionage, flying, French Resistance, world wars, and CS Lewis. A great companion volume to Bond's War in the Wasteland set in WWI. Imminently forthcoming and available to ship well before Christmas 2018. Pre-order signed copies of both books and save today! Free domestic shipping on all pre-orders.
True to form, Douglas Bond delivers yet another historical novel sure to capture the hearts and imaginations of both the young and the old. Readers will thrill at the high-stakes, fast-paced cat and mouse game that ensues among downed Army Air Corps pilot Eli Evans, navigator Charlie Tucker, and the Waffen SS.
The timing of events and diversity among the characters kept the tension hovering at or above an 8 on a 0-10 scale. From the moment the B-17 crashes, until the invasion of Normandy; time (and pages) seemed to fly by. I’ve read a number of books recounting the events leading up to D-Day, but this one provided a unique perspective. The cast of American aircrew, French Resistance, Communist sympathizers, along with the SOE operative, lent to a wide range of viewpoints on politics, religion, and the best plan of action for the team. One of the reasons that navigator Charlie “Chuckles” Tucker was my favorite character is because he could be counted on to break the tension of any given circumstance.
Chock-full of historical facts, this novel will make another wonderful addition to our homeschool library. Not only this, but our son has already read War in the Wasteland, where he was introduced to a young atheist, Clive Staples Lewis. When he picks up this novel he will be able to recognize the transformative power of the Holy Spirit in the life of C.S. Lewis through his BBC radio transmissions.
