Night of Flames
A Novel of WWII

by Douglas W. Jacobson

The Wisconsin Library Association (WLA) has chose Night of Flames for an Outstanding Achievement Award for 2008.

Every year the WLA’s Literary Awards Committee reviews approximately 250 books written by Wisconsin writers, which were published during the previous calendar year, and selects no more than ten to be recognized as outstanding books. The books are judged o their literary merit as well as the quality of the writing, editing, printing and publishing.

Night of Flames is a sweeping thriller that follows the struggles of Jan and Anna Kopernik, two Polish patriots caught up in the struggles of WWII. When the Germans invade Poland in 1939, they set off a fire storm of violence and destruction. Jan and Anna become separated during the ensuing years of German occupation. Anna flees to Belgium and is caught up in the Resistance there, while Jan escapes to Britain with the battered remnants of the Polish army. (See list of 2008 Literary Award winners.)
