Critic Reviews

" Altar of Resistance is a gripping and densely packed thriller dramatizing the Allied Italian campaign...reminiscent of Herman Wouk's The Winds of War." ( Kirkus Reviews)
"Samuel Marquis picks up his World War II trilogy with Altar of Resistance, a well-researched and explosive ride through war-torn Rome with Nazis, booming battles, and intense cat-and-mouse chases.... Grounded in historical fact but spiced up with thrilling imagination with the fate of the world in balance." ( Foreword Reviews)
"Marquis is a student of history, always creative, [and] never boring.... A good comparison might be Tom Clancy." (Military.com)

Great story with historical moments woven in

With family originating in the area and aunts and uncles who lived through those moments, I was able to visualise and empathise with what they went through.
The pronunciation of many of the Italian towns were not clear so it made it difficult at times to understand where we were geographically.

Not worth a credit.

Waste of a Credit poor characters ridiculous situation storyline sounds good but coincidences too far fetched. Narrator didi his best but only so much you can do with a ridiculous script.
