Synopsis

'Historical fiction of a high order... Hurley's descriptions of the cauldron of Stalingrad, and of Shakespearean vengeance are well worth relishing' The Times Berlin, 1942.



For Werner Nehmann, a journalist at the Ministry of Propaganda, the dizzying victory of the last four years has felt like a party without end. But the Reich's attention has turned East, and as winter sets in, the mood is turning.



Werner's boss, Joseph Goebbels, can sense it. His words have propelled Germany towards its greater destiny and he won't - he can't - let morale falter now. But the Minister of Propaganda is uneasy and in his discomfort has pulled Werner into his close confidence.



And here, amid the power struggle between the Nazi Chieftains, Werner will make his mistake and begin his descent into the hell of Stalingrad...



Last Flight to Stalingrad is part of the SPOILS OF WAR Collection, a thrilling, beguiling blend of fact and fiction born of some of the most tragic, suspenseful, and action-packed events of World War II. From the mind of highly acclaimed thriller author GRAHAM HURLEY, this blockbuster non-chronological collection allows the reader to explore Hurley's masterful storytelling in any order, with compelling recurring characters whose fragmented lives mirror the war that shattered the globe.

Customer Reviews

A dark tale, but rather compelling! The Nazis have been riding high on their successes up until now, but fighting on the eastern front is taking hold and the mood isn't as buoyant. Goebbels is determined not to let the little matter of Russian determination alter his plans and enlists Werner Nehmann, a journalist with the Ministry of Propaganda to help in keeping morale up and convince the German people that things aren't as bad as they seem. As the Nazis chiefs begin a power struggle, Nehmann finds out that playing with them is like playing tig with a rattlesnake . . . I'm sorry I came to this series so late; I really didn't know much about the German / Russian conflict and feel as if I have learned an awful lot! This is what I would class as 'men's adventure' but it's not all action-packed. The Nazis play a mean game, and it's all here. A riveting tale, and one which kept me glued to the page. Even having studied World War Two at school - something which prompted a lifelong addiction to domestic sagas set at that time - nothing prepared me for the coldness of the characters all of whom are skilfully crafted by the author. A chilling story, with plenty of ups and downs - but are there any winners? A recommended read, and one I'm happy to give four stars.
