An incredible, true tale of wartime heroism
Meg Ostrum is a museum professional and arts consultant based in Vermont who has worked in the heritage preservation field for more than twenty-five years. She has edited several documentary studies and collections of oral histories, including Visit'n: Conversations with Vermonters, an annual anthology published by the Vermont Folklife Center.
"An extraordinary story of wartime valor and comradeship" Arthur Schlesinger Jr. "Biography, war story, and cultural history combined, it tells of two unlikely heroes who worked together in the Belgian resistance during World War II... Ostrum has pieced together a compelling and inspirational narrative." Library Journal "With echoes of Schindler's List and other stirring wartime epics, The Surgeon and the Shepherd tells the story of a seemingly ordinary man who took uncommon risks to subvert the Nazi war machine." Boston Globe "During a hiking trip in the French Pyrenees in 1983, Ostrum stumbled upon a remarkable story of resistance to the Nazis... [The conspirators"] compelling tale is only part of the story, as themes of class, modernity and deceit are handled gracefully by the author... Ostrum has created a compelling work of 20th-century European history." Publishers Weekly
