Patrick W. O'Bryon
According to the bio on Amazon: "Writer. Traveler. Europhile, especially Italy and France.
Spending a full year delving into a decade of daily journals kept by my late father, who witnessed first-hand and reported on the rise of Nazism in 1930's Germany, I relived the dangers he faced and the courage he demonstrated. These years were a prelude to his work in Allied espionage during the war. "
