Samenvatting

When Lt. Giles Lambert became a French Intelligence Officer, he never could have imagined a Paris and France like this. In less than four weeks his Paris turned dark with the occupation of the Nazi SS and their soldiers skulking on the streets of the left bank and central Paris including St Germain where the significant bars and restaurants spread their tables and chairs onto the sidewalks for customers. Their French victims avoided them and their searching stares which might be followed by searches of their person and arrests at their snide will. As the French army collapsed and British Army Headquarters in Arras prepared to evacuate to the north ports to escape the German Panzars, Giles planned a perilous escape from the disintegrating British Headquarters. After his violent passage back to Paris to seek his wife, Giselle, and discover if France intended to continue to fight. He sought instructions from the vanishing French Headquarters in Paris, known as Vincennes. He and his wife are forced to quickly plan their escape and are helped and deterred by the discovery of unexpected friends and enemies in high places. Their incredible journey is filled with unexpected events and unforeseen dangers as they find that their fates are intertwined with those of the country’s most powerful leaders and of Paris itself. Even Hitler, for his own deranged and vicious purposes, involves himself in the return of the bronze casket and remains of Napoleon’s son to Paris from Vienna where he will have him rest with his father. Thus he foolishly thought to cause the defeated French to feel indebted to him for the unsolicited favor. And then the buoyant and vital story continues, until it’s “nail biting” conclusion.Based on actual events, The French Lieutenant And The King Of Rome tells a sweeping story of risk and romance in Nazi-occupied France during World War II.
