In a better world Jochen would be a concert pianist but in this one, though unconvinced by Nazi ideology, he’s in North Africa, flying for the Fuhrer.
In the desert life is simple; at home it’s complicated. Lotte, a schoolteacher, loves him but where’s Gerda, the war widow he’s fallen for? His twin sister Ilse worries him too; what does she see in Heinecke, the creep with the Gestapo connection? And what is happening to the Jews?
Is Jochen too wrapped up in himself to see what’s going on?
Loosely inspired by the life of Hans-Joachim Marseille, this exciting novel grapples with tough topics around personal beliefs in Nazi Germany.
