Under the Twisted Cross by Margaret M Barnhart captivates her reading audience immediately with a simple "click" from a rifle. Nick Bremer, a 28 year old soldier from the plains of North Dakota finds himself helplessly staring into the Nazi captor's eyes and embarks on an 18 month journey as a Prisoner of War.

Marched behind the enemy lines, hope of being rescued from the Allied forces quickly diminishes and the prisoners are left to their own devices to acclimate and strive towards one common goal, survival. They endure some of the harshest prison camps in Nazi Germany, fighting through starvation, and endure endless hours of shear boredom.

Barnhart's poetic prose and exquisitely detailed descriptions soon submerge the reader into the world of the POW. Her characters become very real intricate details of the story as they find humor and camaraderie with each other. Nick Bremer being of German ancestry is quickly singled out by both POWs and German Nazis. He becomes an interpreter and must find the balance between keeping trust with his fellow captives and negotiating for meager scraps of food with the German Soldiers. Bremer finds some solace to surviving by the pleasant memories of being home in North Dakota.

Margaret M Barnhart has succeeded in intertwining fictional characters into actual historical events. Bremer's character is based on the authors father's real experiences as a POW in Nazi Germany. And she isn't apprehensive about detailing the horrors and ugliness of war yet paints it with delicate prose.

Under the Twisted Cross is a wonderful novel rich in detail and memorable characters. The story moves with action and suspense and keeps the reader engaged anxiously awaiting the next chapter.

From the moment I started reading this story, to the very end, I was captivated. The story was so detailed that I felt as if I was a part of hardtimes, grief, and the little bit of happiness that all of the characters shared as POWs. Margaret Barnhart created a wonderful story to honor our troops and those who served in WWII. I would recommend this book to everyone!

This book was a great read. It was heart wrenching at times but enlightening as to the resourcefulness the POW's had in order to survive. Their support of each other was heart warming. I wanted to know more of how Nick's life was after the war.
