This dramatic memoir traces Herman Bodson's transformation from a pacifist and scientist to, in his own words, "a cold fighter and a killer" in the Belgian underground, an expert in explosives and sabotage. Serving first in the OMBR (Office Militaire Belge de Resistance), he later formed a group of underground fighters in the Belgian Ardennes. They undertook blowing up military trains and installations - including the sabotage of a bridge which resulted in the deaths of some six hundred German soldiers - cutting German communication lines, and rescuing downed American fliers. Bodson also served as a medical aide to an American military doctor at Bastogne in the crucial days of the Battle of the Bulge.
HERMAN BODSON, veteran of the Belgian underground, was born in Brussels. He holds the Docteur es Sciences in Chemistry from the Universite Libre de Bruxelles. After the war he lived for a decade in the Belgian Congo, now Zaire, then came to the United States to join the fauculty of Lake Erie College in Painesville, Ohio. Now retired, he lives in Taos, New Mexico.
