Overview

It is 1944 and war rages throughout the world.

After a harrowing voyage across the Atlantic in which he battles both doubting countrymen and the vaunted German Luftwaffe, Army lieutenant Vince LaSalle reaches England. Reunited with his unit, the combat veteran settles into moving supplies until he is assigned a top-secret delivery. In London, Vince meets Jan Holling, an adjutant to the code breakers, and the first of the international cast with which he becomes inexorably connected. Through her he is introduced to a side of war that rivals combat in its sheer brutality.

Recruited for a special mission, he is rejected because of the color of his skin and then asked to do the impossible when his team is captured in France and then shipped to the heart of the enemy camp—Berlin, where they face torture and ultimately execution. His mission: rescue Jan and the other captured agents or insure what secrets they hold in their minds cannot be revealed.

Vince drops into Poland where he links up with the resistance and begins the deadly journey toward Berlin. When they connect with Charles Petrie, the mysterious Brit who recruited Vince, the black soldiers find themselves involved in deception so twisted that they begin to doubt the very people they are attempting to help. When Vince reaches Berlin the Germans are waiting, but he has unexpected allies. With their help he will attempt the impossible. Incredibly, he has made it into the city but will he and the others make it out alive…

Auslander was written to educate, entertain and to bear witness to what is often termed “African-American history” but what is truly and simply American history. The characters live their convictions despite extreme circumstances and ultimately display the common thread of the human struggle.

    L&K in Tampa

    This was a TRUE page turner from beginning to end and I am waiting with bated breathe for the sequel. It gives a hardly ever seen view into the role of the African American soldier and how vitally important they are to our history. BRAVO Mr. Kelly, BRAVO.

    Much much more than a history lesson!

    A great history lesson, a story that is compellingly wrought with espionage, adventure and gripping human interaction! WOW!
