Book Description


Simon & Schuster: NY 1998 First edition, first printing, mint, new/unread, flawless dustjacket, signed by author.

April 4, 1945. President Roosevelt is briefed on the war in Europe: 28,000 men, women, and children are dying every day. A group of German staff officers is ready to assume leadership of the Third Reich and surrender instantly. The German SS is preparing a fortified retreat in the Bavarian Alps where Hitler may be able to carry on the war for years....

If Dietrich fails, the penalty is death.
