The Road to Hell is Constance Krail-Self's sequel to her first book, "Life in Hitler's Crosshairs." It continues the story of Marta, the Polish protagonist who must act like a Nazi sympathizer though she is, in fact, working for the Polish resistance. Krail-Self is amazingly successful at presenting a beautifully accurate and well researched period of European history and, at the same time, telling a captivating and tense human drama. Anyone interested in what actually happened in Germany and Poland will be intrigued, entertained, as well as educated by this amazing book...highly recommended, .

I loved this book! I agree with the previous reviewer - I liked it even more than the first book "Life In Hitler's Crosshairs"! The first book is a wonderfully-written fictional account of the early stages of WWII as seen through the eyes of the main character, Marta Koblinski, as she grows into a young woman in war-torn Poland. It follows her through her assignment at Auschwitz Concentration Camp as an underground worker for the Polish Resistance and tells the story, with amazing facts and figures, in an extremely interesting way.

This book, "The Road to Hell", continues the story, but somehow draws you into Marta's world even more (if that were possible!) and really re-educated me on the horrors of this war. I didn't quite remember from my school years how many people, countries, buildings, etc. had been destroyed during WWII. This account, while being an extremely good read, also reminded me of the extent of the atrocities of not only Adolf Hitler, but Joseph Stalin as well. I loved how Marta's commentary was really well-written information on the progress of the War. You were right there with Hitler and his staff while they were discussing it. You were also there with Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin peering into their minds as they were dealing with each other. Very interesting stuff!

My favorite part was the fate of Marta's grandmother's brooch. I loved how she tied the two books together with it and ended the story.

It is apparent that this was a labor of love for this author as it has been well-researched and written. I can't say enough about it and encourage everyone to read it!
