Our Only Shield

Three people caught in the turmoil of the opening moves of The Second World War - a Canadian Great War veteran sent into occupied Holland to assess the possibilities of resistance, a callously ambitious but insecure Nazi police officer determined to crush Dutch opposition to the new regime, and a brilliant young woman whose life is irrevocably changed by both men.
In the crucible of a new and hideous kind of totalitarian occupation, Our Only Shield explores conflicting themes of commitment, loyalty, integrity, trust, and the nature of valour. Historically exact and as though provoking as it is tense, this is a page-turning, multi-dimensional interpretation of the character of modern violence.
