THE ROMMEL GAMBIT

THE ROMMEL GAMBIT is a story about the French Resistance shortly before D-Day. The central character is a female resistance fighter with great emotional depth.

In early 1944, an American officer parachutes into Normandy to sabotage Rommel’s efforts to counter the D-Day invasion. But his contact, a beautiful French resistance fighter, may be a double agent. Featuring a lengthy account and depiction of the infamous Vel d’Hiv Roundup, THE ROMMEL GAMBIT is inspired by true events.
