What do a grieving widower and Admiral Donitz have in common? They are both trying to stop Omega, a top-secret weapons system under development at Peenemunde, home of the V-1 and the V-2.
In this entertaining yarn, you'll meet such historical figures as Heinrich Himmler, Werner VonBraun, Prime Minister Churchill, and Wild Bill Donovan, and be taken from the U-boat pens at Lorient, to the rocket shops at Peenemunde, and to the Enigma coding rooms at Bletchley Park in a frightening what-if scenario combining advanced German weapons research with Nazi ruthlessness.
It's not a thrill-packed action tale a la Higgins, but a quieter, more thoughtful look at evil running rampant and people who are willing to put their all on the line to stop it. I found it both chilling and inspiring.
