Description

This fascinating tale of living under German occupation during World War II is told from the unique perspective of a Dutch secret agent. Highlighted by high drama, it is an epic story of life and conflict in the presence of an oppressive enemy. The anti-German struggle in the Netherlands was centered on sabotage requiring stealth and cunning. The reality of war forced many to choose between helping with the resistance, going into hiding, or leaving the country. Those who stayed and served saved countless numbers of Jewish lives and aided the war effort by covertly gathering and disseminating valuable information. The author narrowly escaped the Germans as the British Navy came to his rescue. His story of unremitting toil to overtake an unrelenting enemy is stirring, inspiring, and unforgettable. Christiaan Gutteling lives in Swansea, Wales with his wife. Their two daughters, two grandchildren and one great-grandson live in Dallas, Texas, and their son and his wife live in London. During the war, he worked on a tugboat to gather information on German "degaussing" procedures, which made metal ships immune from sea mines. The War Has Ended but the Memory Lingers On is Christiaan's first published work. His daughter Helen Gutteling Atkinson helped bring the book to fruition.
