W.Y. Boyd Literary Award for Excellence in Military Fiction
The Deadly Embrace
It’s an excellent work on a critical period in the Second World War. The intrigue, the tension, and the secrecy surrounding those critical days before the invasion are chronicled through the eyes of American officers, Lieutenant Elizabeth “Liza” Marantz and Major Sam Taggaret. It is a very compelling tale that enables the reader to obtain a perspective of what it was really like in war-weary England in the days before the Allied invasion of France on June 6, 1944.
