So he returns to Germany to find the woman he had once loved?and to start some kind of life in a vanquished country. But ahead of Walter stretches a dark landscape of defeat and intrigue, as he succumbs to the corrupting influences of a malevolent time. Now he enters a different kind of war, one in which he must make a fateful decision?between love and ambition, passion and greed, life and death. . . .
