Germany, 1938. A world on the brink of war; a boy on the brink of manhood…

Fighting at the Russian Front was not something Johan, a young Jewish boy, had imagined, nor fighting for the very side that wants him dead. As he faces the challenge before him, he must forgo all that he knows to survive.

Disguised as the German soldier Hans Adler, with aims to escape persecution, Johan must fight, and even kill, if he wants to keep his secret unknown.

Clinging to the hope of reuniting with his mother and sister, the last surviving members of his family, the bonds of comradeship keep him alive through the ordeals and madness of battle.

From the outskirts of Moscow to the heart of Stalingrad, Johan must come to terms with the reality of death and hold off his fears of becoming someone he is not. He must keep his secret and stay alive long enough to be back with his family. 

“A dramatic page-turning epic of emotive narration and realistic landscapes that immerse the reader into the writer's mind and the reality of war… Thoroughly enjoyable read.” Tyler, Readalot Reviewer
