“The oldest son of the oldest son,” Serge fully expected to take his place eventually as the family patriarch, from his carefully guided youth in East Prussia to the family’s prudent immigration to America. But world events were to change his destiny completely.
At the time of World War II, Serge enlists in the U.S. Marine Corps and learns the rudiments of military undercover work. By the late thirties, he’s an aeronautical engineer and ready for the real thing—military-industrial espionage at the highest level, in Nazi Germany.
At first the darling of the German High Command, Serge runs afoul of the Gestapo and is forced into perilous escape. But then he has to go back, back into occupied Europe, because the woman he loves is trapped in a ghetto in Belgium and he cannot let her die.

About the Author
Codename: Beowulf is presented as a novel, but Paul Hewen notes it’s all firmly based on the family stories told by his father. Several names have been changed, but the history is quite accurate. This is what it was like.
