Inspired by actual events, Journey to Marseilles follows two young Americans: Sam DiFranco, an idealistic G.I., and Rebecca Smit, a teenage expatriate living in the Netherlands. They each struggle for survival in a story of close camaraderie and desperate courage during World War II.
Sam battles the Vichy French in North Africa and the Nazis on the battlefields of Sicily, Salerno, and Anzio, confronting bloody killing grounds and his own reckless heroism. In occupied Amsterdam, Rebecca works in the Dutch Resistance, delivering forged documents to fleeing Jews and smuggling a downed flier out of the city.
Can they overcome fear, grief, and the crucible of the Third Reich’s holocaust and still return to the homes they once knew?
