The Angel Faces Destruction: THE BRANDT FAMILY CHRONICLES PART 2 by Oliver Fairfax

The Angel Faces Destruction continues the enthralling journey of Paul Brandt that began with The Angel Strikes. You are about to be a party to the second instalment of a historical fiction series that will forever change your view of European history.
A traitor is perfidious, seditious, a betrayer and an informer. Paul ticks all the boxes. It is 1812 and Paul Brandt, a Russian by birth, is attached to the Prussian Auxiliary Column conscripted into Bonaparte's French army for the invasion of Russia. But Paul's newest acquaintances, Gneisenau and Clausewitz , have plotted the destruction of the Grande Armee. Half a million French soldiers will march to their death, if their strategy works, unless Paul saves his column from the fury of his own countrymen and the depths of the Russian winter. From the Neiman River to Moscow is over a thousand kilometres -and they must get back! If Paul can reach the Tsar, can he hatch the plot that opens the escape route? Will he become and angel again?
Don't miss the larger-than-life exploits of Paul Brandt, our newest literary hero. Discover the secrets that allow him to rise above his time and capture our imaginations like no other fictional character. You will marvel as you immerse yourself in a world that seems more real than reality itself.

About the Author

Oliver Fairfax is bound to be one of the most talked about historical fiction novelists for generations to come. With a grand sweep spanning more than two centuries, THE BRANDT FAMILY CHRONICLES expose the lies that bind and pervert European history. Fairfax starts you on your journey with THE ANGEL STRIKES, introducing his main character as a young boy. You will follow the riveting Angel and his colourful descendants through the twists and turns of two centuries. With a master painter's brush, Fairfax gives us an alternative and truthful picture of history. Unlike the view of history you have been told, you will see the ugliness and the beauty that have inevitably led us through the slaughter of war to the present uneasy peace. Upon immersing yourself in his spellbinding tales, you will never view history the same way again. Oliver Fairfax is a lateral-thinking contrarian whose historical undone fiction novels have the ring of truth. He makes connections that are usually ignored, and he exposes falsehoods universally accepted. He questions 'givens' that can lead to catastrophe. In a time when the 'suppression of dissonance' is widely practiced, Oliver Fairfax is in his element. In addition to rewriting the world that you think you know, the historical adventures of Fairfax define the very nature of leadership. His fully human characters take a stand, take opportunities, take revenge, and manage danger. They give of themselves to reach their objective. Others naturally want to follow. That is leadership. The charismatic Brandts command respect and attention, not through fear and intimidation, but through decisive action leading to a desirable result. They know people silently beg to be led. We are all drawn to the Brandts and their tales of intrigue, mystery, suspense, and achievement because this is authenticity at its best.
