Summary (From the publisher):

The novel shows the mechanism of Nazi indoctrination, which turned the main character, Hans Koch, into a professional ‘Death’s Head’ Waffen-SS killer. Eventually he realises that he’s been cheated by his Führer, but he’s unable to escape from his predicament.

The game is over and SS-Corporal Hans Koch has to live as the damned, chased by memories of his victims.

The story covers a period of time from the mid 1930s to the late 1950s and presents the main part of the World War II theatre: Germany, Poland, Austria, Ukraine, the Balkan states and the unlimited space of Soviet Russia. On this huge scene two parallel plots of the book meet and join together—the main Hans Koch’s story and a secondary plot with soviet soldiers from the 3rd Guards Tank Army.
