Review

ALTAR OF RESISTANCE: A NOVEL OF SUSPENSE 
VOLUME TWO OF THE WORLD WAR TWO TRILOGY 
By Samuel Marquis, #1 Denver Post Bestselling, Award-Winning Author 
 
"Altar of Resistance is a gripping and densely packed thriller dramatizing the Allied Italian campaign...reminiscent of Herman Wouk's The Winds of War."
--Kirkus Reviews
 
"Marquis is a student of history, always creative, [and] never boring....A good comparison might be Tom Clancy."
--Military.com
 
"Samuel Marquis picks up his World War II trilogy with Altar of Resistance, a well-researched and explosive ride through war-torn Rome with Nazis, booming battles, and intense cat-and-mouse chases....Grounded in historical fact but spiced up with thrilling imagination with the fate of the world in balance."
--Foreword Reviews
 
"Marquis has really upped his game with Altar of Resistance....It's more than evident considerable research went into establishing the events,settings, and especially the characters....The man is prolific as well as deep."
--Dr. Wesley Britton, Bookpleasures.com (Crime & Mystery)
 
"Master plotter Samuel Marquis has done it again. Beginning with a mysterious double murder, Altar of Resistance brilliantly weaves the personal stories of its two young protagonists, John and Teresa, together with the history of the Allied liberation of Rome during World War II. In addition to page-turning intrigue, the reader is treated to revelations about Pope Pius XII's secret role fighting the Nazis. Altar of Resistance is a taut historical thriller at its finest."
--Kelly Oliver, author of WOLF and COYOTE
 

From the Author

How does it feel to return once again to your WWII Series (Book 1, Bodyguard of Deception, was released in March 2016)? Why is Altar of Resistance (Book 2 of the series) an important book?
 
I love researching and writing WWII espionage thrillers most of all, but the genre does take a lot of hard work and the book readers tend to be some of my harshest critics (insert laughter). Altar of Resistance is basically a history book, written as a thriller, covering the German Occupation of Rome and Italian Campaign of 1943-1945. It is an important subject for several reasons. First, the Italian Campaign--or the Guerra di Liberazione (War of Liberation) as Italians prefer to call it--was the only theater of operations that included a major world leader, Pope Pius XII, caught up not only in the middle of the fighting but in the midst of a Nazi occupation and a major plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler. Second, it involved the most diverse assemblage of nationalities and differing races among the Allied and Axis armies during WWII, including not only Americans (including  Native-Americans, African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Japanese-Americans), British, and Germans in the fighting, but also Italians (on both sides), Austrians, Yugoslavians, French, Moroccans, Norwegians, Canadians, New Zealanders (whites and Maori), Poles, Nepalese, Indians (all faiths), South Africans (white, Asian, black, Zulus), and in the air forces, Australians, Rhodesians, and others. The war in Italy was a truly multinational and multiracial affair in a truly global war. Finally, the Italian Campaign showcased some of the fiercest fighting of the war with over a million total casualties, including more than 300,000 Allied and 500,000 German casualties and over 150,000 Italian civilians killed. I wanted to recreate this monumental event in American and world history in a sprawling, epic spy thriller reminiscent of Ken Follett's WWII novels.
