Description

Based on real events at the end of World War II, this thrilling military novel has increased relevance in today's climate of terrorism. "Flight of the Valkyrie" centers on an attempt by members of the doomed Nazi hierarchy to infiltrate the Manhattan Project and capture the newly developed atomic bomb, intending to leverage it to improve the treatment of German POWS under the Geneva Convention. Receiving classified intelligence of the project's progress from a mole within the Russian spy network, a top-secret team of German commandos lands on the coast of Main and launches a campaign of blackmail, forgery, and ruthlessness. This gripping story is inspired by the real-life intrigues of Heinrich Himmler, a preeminent Nazi commander, who instigated a special underground spy unit in a desperate attempt at self-preservation in 1945. All the hallmarks of a great espionage thriller are here, enhanced by the cast of endlessly complex characters, the fresh and distinctive voice of this first-time novelist, and by the note of authenticity that distinguishes the best historical fiction.show more
