LELAND, N.C., Jan. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Author Bruce Jarvis has published his exciting World War II spy thriller, “Code Name: Arc Angel,” that plunges readers into the year 1940 as Europe finds itself in crisis with Adolf Hitler leading Germany, the Italians declaring war on Great Britain and France, and the formidable Luftwaffe carrying out large-scale attacks.

The book follows Carlton Fuller – an ordinary U.S. citizen and family man – who is called upon due to his German background by the Office of Strategic Services to infiltrate the highest ranks of the Nazi Party in a daring, covert operation that could determine the outcome of the war.

Fuller assumes the identity of a Nazi Colonel who plans armed services operations and interacts with Hitler and other notorious individuals, including Heinrich Himmler, Alfred Jodl, Joseph Goebbels, and their respective staffs. As Fuller attempts to fulfill his mission by gathering military secrets for the allies, he puts everything on the line for the sake of destroying Hitler’s regime.

“… sincere World War II buffs will find a lot in Carlton Fuller’s story that is appealing,” a Foreword Clarion reviewer wrote. “‘Code Name: Arc Angel’ delivers the greatest hits of World War II wrapped up in personal narrative, with the unique addition of a German-born American hero to the World War II fictional canon.”

“In his ambitious book, Jarvis displays a masterly command of the historical period – especially impressive is his grasp of German language and culture,” a Kirkus reviewer wrote. “… In addition, the plot is as inventive as it is clever.”

Based on a true story, “Code Name: Arc Angel” twines elements of drama, romance, and espionage to deliver something for every reader while also embodying notions of duty, patriotism, and personal sacrifice.
