"The Urchin Warriors" Young Kristian Ackmann, a German soldier of the elite 12th SS Hitler youth Panzer Division, is given the assignment of defending Caen in France near the Normandy coast against the inevitable allied invasion. Kristian meets Holly Petit, a beautiful budding French girl and the two of them unexpectedly fall madly and passionately in love. The romance these two young lovers share must be hidden so that Holly will not suffer humiliation and torment by her countrymen as well as being shunned for collaborating with the enemy. This is truly a heart wrenching story of a forbidden love in the midst of the greatest war the world has ever known.
Internationally renowned author Robert Nichelson, author of the epic novel “The Swede” is a freelance writer. He resides in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains on Shady Lake in Washington State. Robert is a collector, historian and researcher of little known stories of the fearsome Waffen SS.
Taut, well told, and flowed well. Some of the character development was slightly 2D for my tastes, but it no way impinged on the storyline or flow. I kept finding strange periods at random places in sentences—but, once I cleaned the screen on my phone—they stopped appearing. Waiting for the second book.
