A story of intrigue - which bounces along nicely. I read it in one sitting! A German prisoner of war [WW2] escapes from prison camp in England and enormous resources are put in place to find and recapture him. To the Germans, this "hero" must be brought back to Germany - they feel his presence there would be a major coup and would seriously embarrass the Allies, particularly Churchill. The Germans use submarines to bring him home to Germany [via Ireland]. This is successful but at enormous cost. The escapee arrives in Germany and is brought to Hitler at the bunker in Berlin - just in time to experience the demise of the Nazis as Berlin falls to the Russians. I am a fan of Dobbs anyway, but I particularly enjoyed this book. It has great believability.
