EXCERPT: Foxtrots and Foxholes, by Effie-Alean Gross
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
~~Sir Winston Churchill.
On the brink of Hitler’s hell, Jacob Zimmerman braced himself like a marked man. The Nazis wouldn’t win this time. Those dastardly beasts! They couldn’t always lock his freedom behind barred gates. Today, he defiantly risked a meeting with his flame, the girl he’d stolen a kiss from at age six in Grundschule, primary school. This was his last chance to see a forbidden first love—a 17-year-old, blue-eyed blonde—an Aryan.
