  • Chilling & Compelling!

    A dark tale, but rather compelling! The Nazis have been riding high on their successes up until now, but fighting on the eastern front is taking hold and the mood isn't as buoyant. Goebbels is determined not to let the little matter of Russian determination alter his plans and enlists Werner Nehmann, a journalist with the Ministry of Propaganda to help in keeping morale up and convince the German people that things aren't as bad as they seem. As the Nazis chiefs begin a power struggle, Nehmann finds out that playing with them is like playing tig with a rattlesnake . . . I'm sorry I came to this series so late; I really didn't know much about the German / Russian conflict and feel as if I have learned an awful lot! This is what I would class as 'men's adventure' but it's not all action-packed. The Nazis play a mean game, and it's all here. A riveting tale, and one which kept me glued to the page. Even having studied World War Two at school - something which prompted a lifelong addiction to domestic sagas set at that time - nothing prepared me for the coldness of the characters all of whom are skilfully crafted by the author. A chilling story, with plenty of ups and downs - but are there any winners? A recommended read, and one I'm happy to give four stars.

  • Fascinating

    Amazing research is the core of this fascinating book about Germany's war in the time leading up to and during the siege of Stalingrad, interweaving an intriguing view into Goebbels and the power of propaganda. Almost impossible to put down.

  • Enjoyable

    Well written and quite an eye opener to life on the eastern front, ironically reading it whilst the Ukraine conflict is going on, similarities existing 80 years on.
