The author, John Dizon, is obviously a superb researcher. He did a very good job researching German Special Forces and French resistance – something I knew little about. His research was very helpful for me to understand that part of the war. Nor did I know much about criminal activity going on in France at that time. Now I do.
Be forewarned. This book points out the graphic horrors of war and the atrocities committed. It reflects on war’s hateful, bloodthirsty outrages. Unfortunately it is reality. It does not glorify war. How the author was able to include a love story and give Carl a sense of compassion in all this madness was refreshing. That, at least, gives me a little hope for humanity.
I highly recommend “Wolfsangel”
Some reviewers have complained about certain factual anomalies but my response would be that this is a FICTIONAL NOVEL, not a true historical rendition of the latter days of World War Two. As such, it is a real page turner, and I particularly loved to hate the disfigured and twisted. 'Captain Skullface' a villain of the highest order. A great read from start to finish.
On the positive side, the book is action-packed; the pace very fast and the settings and action are vividly described. The story also shines a light on some real outrages of WWII that don't get much attention in modern history classes today. Best of all, there is a theme of sacrifice and redemption which makes some sense of the violence and gore of war.
I do think the book would benefit from some additional editing. The structure can be confusing as it sometimes jumps from place to place and back and forth in time without a clear transition for the reader. And there are too many side plots and characters for a relatively short book. I also found that most of the characters talked the same way, making it harder to differentiate them.
Still, if you prefer hard-hitting action over fancy literary style, you may well like Wolfsangel.
Rating 5.5/10 stars
