THE CRACK OF DOOM

World War II is coming to an end, but in the Carpathians the Germans are fighting the partisans and both are awaiting the Russians. Following the fortunes and tragic fates of several men and officers, both German and Czech, this novels presents a vivid, grimly realistic picture of the terror of total war to soldiers and civilians. Similar in tone and philosophy to the author's previous novel, The Iron Cross, this should appeal to much the same audience, although by virtue of a larger cast of characters The Crack of Doom is broader in scope.
