Foreign correspondent Bruce Bacon has uncovered the truth about one of World War II's most shocking acts of genocide. When he tries to get his story into print, he becomes not a hero but an outcast, persecuted by his own government. Outraged, he is suddenly a man betrayed by all he holds dear, except his belief in freedom and his passion for an Irish beauty.

Review: The Pledge

User Review  - B. Asher - Goodreads

A little slow to start, but the book was very enjoyable and the characters well developed. My only real criticism was the ending (which I will not ruin for others). As a side note, I went looking for information on Howard Fast and was sorry to learn that he passed away in 2003. Read full review
