Item description for Dunkirk Crescendo (Zion Covenant V9) by Bodie Thoene & Brock Thoene...
As spring 1940 unfolds in Paris, war is inevitble. AP journalist Josephine Marlow is asked to undertake a dangerous journey back into the borders of the reich--just when the Fuhrer is gathering his forces for another invasion. If she is successful, a child will live. If not, he will die. And many other children, too. French colonel Andre Chardon knows that the undefeated Fuhrer will not hold back his Blitzkrieg long from France. But the plan of attack revealed in a coded message is so audacious that no one believes Andre. Whom can he convince? Who will have the courage to act before thousands of innocents are slaughtered? And is a miracle at Dunkirk Harbor possible?

Reviews - What do customers think about Dunkirk Crescendo (Zion Covenant V9)?
Dunkirk Crescendo Mar 20, 2007
Out of all of the Zion Covenant books, this one was my least favorite. Too many battle scenes, and not enough character development. If you like to read about battles, you'll probably like this book more than I did, but if not, you'll probably find yourself skipping paragraphs, just like I did!
Minor Protection Act Jun 19, 2006
A must-read for anyone concerned about religious liberty and parental rights in America. This is a great fictional story woven intricately together with what could happen. Your children could be considered raised in a hostile environment (and potentially removed from your home) because they attend a Christian school and what can you do about it? The author is a great storyteller and you won't want to put it down!
Dunkirk Crescendo... Anticlimactic at best. Jul 13, 2005
If you've read my other reviews on the newest installments to the Zion Covenant series you'll know I'm an avid fan. However this book fails to impress in SO many ways. To put it best 99% of this book is made up of the latter third of The Twilight of Courage. It only includes a few very minor changes and, to be honest, most of the loose threads of the story and plot are summed up in the two-page epilogue. Terribly disappointing to say the least.
