A Shadow in the Night
A. F. Witzsche
In times of great crisis, patriotic leadership has saved our world many a time, probably far more often than we know. It is rarely the powerful politician who saves the day, but a little person standing in the background acting decisively to foil the plans of the giants. A fictional story of this nature unfolds in my novel "Winning Without Victory" in honor of all the unsung giants (the novel is free online). The story comprises Chapter 6 of the novel. The title of the chapter is: A Shadow in the Night.
The story is situated in
North Carolina at a Navy coastal monitoring station where an incidence is
observed that all the electronic wizardry had failed to detect. A gigantic
crisis unfolds, and there is little time to react while the world hangs in the
balance depending on someone doing the right thing when no one knows what the
right thing is. This is a feat that only the power of our humanity can master.
The novel is Volume 3 of the series of novels, The Lodging for the Rose
