Living the high-life in occupied Paris, Wehrmacht officer Karl Bazinger discovers that his open disdain for the Nazis and friendship with Hans, who may be involved with the Resistance, have made him a target of the SS and requests a transfer to the Eastern front, where he comes face to face with a vastly different experience of war. 20,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
The year is 1942 and Europe is besieged by war. Germany has defeated most of the continent and is approaching Russia.
In Occupied Paris, Karl Bazinger, a German officer, has realised that he can no longer ignore the war. An adventurer, traveller, the perfect guest, Karl has always put the good life before politics. But lately he has begun to question the regime he serves.
In Germany, at the centre of power, Hans Beilenberg, a fellow officer and an old friend of Karl's, has found a way out of the same dilemma. But he knows - with chilling certainty - that his decision can only lead to death.
And in Kiev, now under the Germans, Katia, a doctor and a healer, holds together her family, broken by the massacre of Baby Yar and the mass deportations to the Gulag.
What happens between these three people in the year '42? Destiny is so far-reaching precisely because it is unlikely.
