This is my very favorite WWII novel. The plot is ingenious and the ending will amaze, astonish, and shock you. The climax of the book provides a most satisfying ending--if only Hitler had received his comeuppance as he does here. It's too bad that no one ever made a movie out of this book.

I have read this book during summer and I have thought this book was very interesting. The characters are believable and I thought the plot was pretty good. To me Adolf Hitler was annoying yet I felt a tinge of sympathy. Oh well.

A must read for all people interested in the final days of the Third Reich! Heywood's novel unveils the action the Nazis undertook to get Hitler out of Berlin before the allies arrived.

A riviting story based on the premise that Hitler escapes the Bunker in 1945. A fast paced story leads the reader on a chase through Europe in the days following the fall of Berlin. The Berkut pits Stalin's personal elite squad against the wiles of the Third Riech's Wolf. A fun read with twists and turns , many of which are based in truth. Do not miss this one!
