Headwind: The Intrepid Adventures of OSS Agent Katrin Nissen
Professor Katrin Nissen is recalled to service in the OSS in the early days of WWII and finds herself Winston Churchill’s last hope to stop the Nazis before they reach Norway. Not your average spy, Katrin enlists the help of family to complete her mission and must survive an encounter with a high-ranking SS Colonel as well as a double agent who's out for nobody but himself.
The eternal struggle of good against evil gets a fresh telling in this inspiring and heartwarming story of courage, determination, and the indomitable triumph of the human spirit.
You’ll laugh and you’ll also shed a tear or two as Katrin’s story begins.
The Danes Resist
Headwind, a first novel by KK Brees, dramatizes the efforts of the resistance movement in Denmark to thwart the advances of the Germans at the start of World War II. We meet the citizens of Sankt Peder situated on the rugged west coast of the Jutland peninsula where the geographic elements create a path for the advancing Germans to invade Norway and Sweden.
While Headwind is a novel, the story is as real as the history textbooks. We are caught up in the intrigue, the murders, the valiant efforts of the underground spy system, as well as the bravado of local people who are the victims of another war from which they cannot escape.
