Iron Menby Leonard B. Scott
At the end of World War II, Axel Mader and Jorn Furman two young officers who wear Germany's highest class of Iron Cross barely escape the retribution of the SS. Decades later, their fates are entangled with that of Jake Tallon, an American soldier stationed in Berlin who falls in love with Mader's daughter. Tallon, too, is a decorated war hero, though from Vietnam, not WWII. Together, the three iron men join together in Berlin just before the fall of the Wall to confront the legacy of the past . . . and defeat it.

This book has it all - an incredible plot that leaves you wanting more, characters that get inside you from the start, and an ending so volatile you need to strap yourself in for the ride! Don't plan on sleeping until you finish this book; it's that good!!
I have grown up without reading very many books, they just didn't keep me interested. One trip to Ft. Drum, NY, i was bored and decided to go to a little Class VI/bookstore across from where i was working. Grabbed his book, "The Expendables" and tore through that in a few days. Went back and bought another... I think i rifled through all his books pretty quickly, other than the FBI ones (Duty Bound, or whatever), and this one, "The Iron Men", was his best story. It's probably been a decade+ since I've read his books, including this one, but it made enough of a lasting impression that i always try to pimp his books whenever some of my ex-military co-workers and I get on the topic of books (which isn't often).
It isn't very often that an author can juggle all of the things that make up a great adventure novel and make the book great, but Scott has done it. Tough as nails heroes, romance (just enough), a villain you love to hate, and a showdown that thoroughly satisfies. Great book.
