The late Pierre Gerard's historical war romance, Le Havre, poignantly portrays the atrocities of war, and what happens when individuals and nations either ignore, unite with or combat those whose deliberate and declared intent is to intimidate, persecute, dominate and annihilate other people and countries of the world.

We learn about the boundless bravery that was France’s salvation during those terrifying, turbulent years. We experience patriotism and discover the ultimate meaning of devotion to one’s country through ingenuity and self-sacrifice. We taste the unleashed, incomprehensible evil that man is capable of and the horrific anguish and extermination the Nazis successfully executed against Jews, dissidents, and those they deemed different and inferior, and therefore, unworthy of life.

We go through the early warning signs of tyranny and easily get engrossed in the intensity and importance of defending oneself, one’s culture and one’s homeland against radical, racist and immoral intruders. We are reminded that the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual carnage of World War II continues to haunt and hound us even today. And so, Le Havre is significant not just for France and Europe during World War II, as the ramifications of this historical novel and era also apply to present and future civilizations, all free world nations, and the planet.

With this in mind, it is my hope that the reader be awakened and inspired by the passion and positive activism of The French Resistance. Let this work guide mankind in the current battle against terrorism to preserve justice, morality, and independence for all, and respect for our Creator and His creations.
