FORT KNOX, Ky. — New York Times bestselling author and historian Martin Dugard, coauthor of the popular “Killing” series with Bill O’Reilly, will discuss his latest book, Taking Paris: The Epic Battle For The City of Lights, as part of Barr Memorial Library’s Virtual Authors at Your Library series Sept. 28 at 6 p.m.

Taking Paris is about the story of those who set the city free from Nazi control.

May 1940: The world is stunned as Hitler's forces invade France with a devastating blitzkrieg aimed at Paris. Within weeks, the French government has collapsed, and the City of Lights — revered for its carefree lifestyle, intellectual freedom, and love of liberty — has fallen under Nazi control, perhaps forever. As the Germans ruthlessly crush all opposition, a patriotic band of Parisians known as the Resistance secretly rise up to fight back. But these young men and woman cannot do it alone.

As the armies of America and Great Britain prepare to launch the greatest invasion in history, the spies of the Resistance risk all to ensure the Germans are defeated and Paris is once again free. Taking Paris is history told at a breathtaking pace; a sprawling yet intimate saga of heroism, desire and personal sacrifice for all that is right.

Dugard has written on topics ranging from presidents to Egyptian pharaohs. Alongside Bill O’Reilly, he is coauthor of the bestselling Killing series, including Killing Patton and Killing Lincoln. His other acclaimed works include Into Africa, The Explorers, The Murder of King Tut, and To Be a Runner. He is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and has flown around the world at twice the speed of sound.

The virtual event will feature an exclusive Q&A with the author. Those in attendance could win a copy of Taking Paris.
