A fascinating story within a story...a man searching for who his father is enters the world of the father's experiences in WWII, through a memoir written by his father during court marshall hearings, something the main character never knew about. It takes on some of the big issues of the time: the French resistance, the Battle of the Bulge, the atomic bomb, the holocaust, OSS. I got a lot of framing done, because I didn't want to turn off the CD player! Once again it brings home the horror of war.
