About the Book: Part contemporary detective story, part World War II historical narrative, "No Surrender" is the inspiring true story of Roddie Edmonds, a Knoxville-born enlistee who risked his life during the final days of World War II to save others from murderous Nazis, and the lasting effects his actions had on thousands of lives—then and now.
