Review

" A great novel of one of the epic battles of all time--Stalingrad." -- W.E.B. Griffin
" Robbins has done his homework....A historical thriller with the punch of a full metal jacket." "-- The Denver Post"
" A frighteningly realistic patchwork depicting the long siege that changed the course of the war. Based on a true story, the novel deftly captures an extraordinary time and place in history...[in a] vivid, authentic representation of men of unusual skill and focus in the midst of a barbarous war." "-- Richmond-Times Dispatch"
" Immensely exciting and terribly authentic. White-knuckle tension as the two most dangerous snipers in Europe hunt each other through the hell of Stalingrad." -- Frederick Forsyth, author of The Day of the Jackal and The Fist of God
" I devoured it. The reporting and writing are amazing, and the snipers' duel with its layers of subtle technique and imagined motivation is suspenseful and powerful. It's a very good portrait of one of this century's most important and terrible battles, and probably the most intense urban conflict in history." -- Mark Bowden, author of "Black Hawk Down"
" a good candidate for the thriller of the summer award... gives a compelling and graphic sense of the heroism-filled nightmare called Stalingrad...A readable, gritty adventure story." "-- The New York Times"
" Breakneck-fast and laced with real-life vignettes." "-- USA Today"
