“This is one of the best books I have ever read. Ever. Once the author hits his stride it is truly a page-turner, with cliffhanger after cliffhanger. From a story standpoint this book stands out, but also from a history lesson this is more than worth the read. Buy it and share it, but realize that you will not be able to put it down.”

“A well-written story of courage and determination that nobody should ever experience “NEVER AGAIN ” A must read for everybody.”
Anonymous Amazon Reviewer


“Who knew that history could be so exciting and could produce such a page-turner? I have sat through many a boring history class and read seemingly endless history textbooks. This book brings it all to life with real people experiencing real events. A novel could not be more exciting! Experiencing vicariously the wartime experiences of Staszek, his family, friends, and those who betrayed him makes one really appreciate living in the USA and all it means. Let us learn from history such as portrayed in this book and make sure that such things never again occur.”
R.S., Amazon Reviewer


“Though Codename: FLAME is a well-crafted work of historical significance based on a true story, it reads like a heart thumping movie – with scene after scene of dramatic episodes of the hero’s journey. The fact these episodes actually happened to the author’s father is a testament to the courage and determination required to overcome evil in the quest for good. Two thumbs up!”

By Dr. Robert Niklewicz

The Last Train to Dachau is based on a true story of the Miller’s family’s efforts to survive in occupied Poland during World War II. Follow the horror and obstacles that this Polish family faced and had to overcome not to stay together but to stay alive.

Read about the physical and mental stresses that the family endured.

As they resist their captors who were desperately trying to accomplish their “final solution” for all Poles, ask “What would I have done?” It will be difficult to put the book down as the Millers face their fate together.



“The title of the book, once one reaches the final scenes at the end, will send shivers down your spine long after the reading of this family’s journey is finished.”
Anne F. Giosso


“I encourage everyone to read and share this remarkable work and offer only one caveat: once you pick it up you won’t be able to put it down!
Kathy W. Kirkland


“I gave this book a 5 star rating and it deserves every star. It is history from yet another perspective, and it is a story that needs to be told over and over again so that this kind of atrocity is not repeated.”
