Karl Veth was overjoyed to be reunited with his Father; but was angry at the Kommissar for using his Father’s life as a tool to get Karl to eliminate an enemy. Karl had come through World War II without having to use his skill as a sniper to kill anyone and did not want to do it now. It seems as if he doesn’t have a choice. He understands the Kommissar’s reasons but doesn’t have to like them. All Karl wants is to take his Father to Westphalia where his Mother and two siblings are now living. First they have to get out of the Russian held portion of Berlin.
Harold Kellner is still reeling from the death of his Mother after repeated rapes and beatings by a Russian unit. The Kommissar was able to find his Mother and bring her to Berlin before she died so her son could be with her and for that he was grateful. However, he felt nothing but getting revenge for her after she died. The Kommissar has also located his Father; but he is being held in Spandau prison for war crimes. Harold takes the Kommissar’s offer to take him under his wing and give him the best education Europe has to offer and a place in the Russian army leadership. This will mean he and Karl will be separated.
Each boy has to choose the path he will now follow since the war is over. They must each stay true to their own values or change them to fit the path they chose. The choice is never easy. The series is an excellent one of two boys who are intelligent and ambitious in the Third Reich and who resist the indoctrination of the Third Reich by questioning what they learn.
As for Harold, the harder of the two boys wise, the one more resolute and ruthless in many ways, I find an interesting protagonist. He makes choices, including leaving his father behind to go to Russia that ate very German and very understandable and I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

Godunov uses Harold to get as much plunder as he could back to Russia so he could retire, Harold finds his father at Spandau, the Russians look the other way as he escapes, Truman mentions they have a new type of bomb, they drop this on Japan followed by another a few days later, the Russians had large forces of tanks and soldiers waiting on the border, the news is followed by a retreat back to Russia, there is much more to the book than I have mentioned and I will leave this to the reader
My verdict, not as good as the first three books but still worth a read
I have an avid interest in the era and as this was based on a true life of someone i think I may have learnt some more.
I'll be taking a break before I learn more about Harold life in the other books.
