About this title:

Synopsis:

From the deserts of Libya and Egypt to the icy lakes of Scotland, from London under the Blitz to German occupied France, from Alpine glaciers to the stately homes of Britain, this book ranges over the landscapes of World War II. Its protagonist escapes from Austria with a burning desire for revenge after the murder of his parents by an SS officer. He becomes a British agent, is involved in numerous missions against the German enemy and at the same time hunts for the killer of his parents. At the climax of the book, just as he finds the murderer, he is ordered by his chief to sacrifice his life and the life of the woman he loves in order to ensure the success of the invasion of Normandy by the Allies. Will he comply - and is it necessary?

About the Author: The Author was born in Vienna, Austria. He escaped the Nazi annexation of Austria, escaped again from Paris as German troops approached, escaped for a third time from occupied into unoccupied France, made his way through Spain and Portugal to one of the last ships to leave Europe and arrived in the U.S. shortly before Pearl Harbor. He then joined the U.S.Army, was trained in the famous spy school at Camp Ritchie, Md. and served as an OSS operative and a Special Agent of the Counter Intelligence Corps in the liberation of Europe. He used his personal story to ensure the authenticity of the background of this novel. Another novel - THE IMPROBABLE SPY and a Memoir of his own adventures, FLIGHT AND RETURN have been published.
