I am a School owner and instructor for over 22 years, the Head coach of the Maine Junior Olympic Tae-kwon-do National teams (1993 to 2002), and assistant coach of the Senior team.My favorite time is relaxing with my adorable best friend and wife, Michelle. Fishing, hiking, or on a mission for God, I look forward to those special, quite moments to share. She's been a God send.One night a week I am devoted to a youth prison ministry in South Portland, two nights are spent teaching Taekwondo, and I work full time as a facility supervisor for a biomedical manufacturer. The most rewarding thing I have witnessed is another person accepting Jesus, seeing their smile and eyes after Jesus has removed their burden.This recently happened at the youth prison when a young man of 17 gave his life to Christ after he had read this book a couple of weeks earlier. What an answer to prayer because the sole purpose of this book is you. I love watching our sovereign God at work performing signs, wonders, and miracles. What an honor it is to be in God's presence.
During the Second World War, almost one hundred Canadians served the Allied forces by passing as locals in occupied countries. At the behest of two British secret services, these men made language and custom their costumes. They risked their lives assisting resistance groups in sabotage and ambush missions or in smuggling Allied airmen out of occupied territories. Quiet heroes of the war, these bold Canadians helped to make the brutal and unrelenting warfare of the underground a potent weapon in the Allied arsenal. This is a study of unstinting personal courage in the face of overwhelming odds.
With three Military Crosses, three Croix de guerre, a Légion d'honneur and a papal knighthood for his heroics during the Second World War, Sir Tommy Macpherson is the most decorated living soldier of the British Army. Yet for 65 years the Highlander's story has remained untold. Few know how, aged 21, he persuaded 23,000 SS soldiers of the feared Das Reich tank column to surrender, or how Tommy almost single-handedly stopped Tito's Yugoslavia annexing the whole of north-east Italy. Twice captured, he escaped both times, marching through hundreds of miles of German-held territory to get home. Still a schoolboy when war broke out, Tommy quickly matured into a legendary commando, and his remarkable story features a dizzyingly diverse cast of characters, including Winston Churchill, Field Marshal Montgomery and Charles de Gaulle.
"[T]he amazing story of a woman who lived through one of the worst times in human history, losing family members to the Nazis but surviving with her spirit and integrity intact.” —Publishers Weekly Marthe Cohn was a young Jewish woman living just across the German border in France when Hitler rose to power. Her family sheltered Jews fleeing the Nazis, including Jewish children sent away by their terrified parents. But soon her homeland was also under Nazi rule. As the Nazi occupation escalated, Marthe’s sister was arrested and sent to Auschwitz and the rest of her family was forced to flee to the south of France. Always a fighter, Marthe joined the French Army and became a member of the intelligence service of the French First Army. Marthe, using her perfect German accent and blond hair to pose as a young German nurse who was desperately trying to obtain word of a fictional fiancé, would slip behind enemy lines to retrieve inside information about Nazi troop movements. By traveling throughout the countryside and approaching troops sympathetic to her plight--risking death every time she did so--she learned where they were going next and was able to alert Allied commanders. When, at the age of eighty, Marthe Cohn was awarded France’s highest military honor, the Médaille Militaire, not even her children knew to what extent this modest woman had helped defeat the Nazi empire. At its heart, this remarkable memoir is the tale of an ordinary human being who, under extraordinary circumstances, became the hero her country needed her to be.
A pilot of a B-17 describes how his plane was struck by enemy fire while returning from a bombing run over Germany, and how the crew was forced to parachute into Holland where the Nazis eventually captured him and sent him to a prisoner of war camp.

Examines biblically based methods for engaging in effective spiritual warfare.
Behind Enemy Lines is an examination of gender relations in wartime using the Special Operations Executive as a case study. Drawing on personal testimonies, in particular oral history and autobiography, as well as official records and film, it explores the extraordinary experiences of male and female agents who were recruited and trained by a British organization and infiltrated into Nazi-Occupied France to encourage sabotage and subversion during the Second World War. With its original interpretation of a wealth of primary sources, it examines how these ordinary, law-abiding civilians were transformed into para-military secret agents, equipped with silent killing techniques and trained in unarmed combat. This fascinating, timely and engaging book is concerned with the ways in which the SOE veterans reconstruct their wartime experiences of recruitment, training, clandestine work and for some, their captivity, focusing specifically upon the significance of gender and their attempts to pass as French civilians. This examination of the agents of an officially-sponsored insurgent organization makes a major contribution to British socio-cultural history, war studies and gender studies and will appeal to both the general reader, as well as to those in the academic community.

Terror, Torture, Death...It was kill first or be killed for these men who fought their own private hit-and-run war. True accounts of World War II heroic secret raiders whose daring missions behind enemy lines changed the course of the war. Ten accounts of high courage and dedication—stories of the suicidal missions of the World War II. ““Courage knows no nationality"—and it might be added—bounds—which a collection of now-it-can-be-told tales attempts to prove. Mr. Sanderson's stories focus on surpassing daring, audacity and cunning—to match any act of heroism on the field of battle. Usually these intrepid escapades were the work of one ingenious planner; sometimes, however, whole crews engaged in death-defying sorties. The writing catches the spirit of these men with realism and drama, whether the story deals with an incredible plot to kill Rommel (which didn't come off); the disposal of an embryonic Nazi A bomb in Norway in 1943; a "cockleshell" raid along a Nazi-held river; or the grim humor of Britain's only private, "independent" army—Popski's Army, fighting alongside the Tommies in Tunisia.... Good cloak-and-dagger stuff that points up the fact that even the Armed Services had great need of wildly imaginative non-conformists.... For the boys—or men—who are commandos in spirit.”-Kirkus Reviews

A young WWII gunner from the Prairies sees the horrors of war firsthand when he is captured by the Gestapo. Eighteen-year-old Sam Frederiksen has come a long way from the Prairies. Trained to be a gunner in a Lancaster bomber during WWII, he is shot down over France. Battered and bruised, he does survive, and joins forces with the French Resistance... only to be betrayed by one of its members. He and other flyers from various Allied countries are rounded up by the Gestapo and held in Fresnes prison just outside of Paris. Treated as spies, rather than POWs, these men are beaten, some tortured - then sent to Buchenwald Concentration Camp in eastern Germany. It is here, in these wretched conditions, that Sam witnesses the darkest side of humanity - gas chambers, torture and starvation. Yet it is also here that he comes to understand the true resilience and unfathomable courage of the victims. Author Carol Matas has won numerous awards for her previous novels about the Holocaust. Behind Enemy Lines is partially based on a true incident from WWII, in which 168 Allied airmen were captured and sent to Buchenwald. Twenty-six of these men were Canadian.
