About the Author

Henry Scott Harris, a native New Yorker, is a World War II Navy veteran and a graduate of New England College who had an award-winning career in advertising, marketing and public relations. Long active in community service, he was a member of Governor Rockefeller's Economic Commission and was a volunteer director of the USO. He also created and produced the first telethon for the Association of Retarded Children (now known as "Arc of the United States").

After serving as a National Director for Metro-CBS-Radio/TV, he and his wife "retired" to Arizona, traveled extensively, and wrote articles for magazines and newspapers. They also became volunteer teachers in elementary and high schools, and were amazed to find that many students knew very little about history, and especially the war years (such things as "Why is December 7th notable? Where is Iwo Jima and what happened there? Who was Eisenhower?"). As a result, Harris organized a highly successful ‘living history' program -- "Heroes and the Holocaust" -- that featured veterans and a survivor of the Bergen-Belsen camp who visited schools, relating their own experiences during this tumultuous time.

Harris and his wife now live in Fairview, Texas.

Just couldn't put it down. This man's life is unbelievable. Couldn't imaghine a boy, at age eight, running away alone to find freedom in France and making it. Every chapter is a new adventure and best of all..true. How the author found so much research. As a man, Bullard, becomes a hero in t and is also denied by the USA. The book has all the emotions, inckuding love, friendship, being a spy, a boxer, dancer and owner of a world famous nightclub and marries into white French Royalty. Could't ask for more.wo wars
