(From the publisher):
"THE TIME BOMB WHICH WAS TO KILL ADOLF HITLR, FÜHRER AND COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF THE GERMAN ARMED FORCES, WAS ASSEMBLED AT SMOLENSK WITH GREAT CARE..."
In 1943 Hitler was at the height of his powers. At his side constantly was Martin Bormann. On his mind constantly was the war against the beleaguered might of Stalin's Russia.
After 13th March 1943 records show a drastic change in his behaviour and personality. This was the date of a bomb attack on his private plane.
If Hitler was destroyed on that date who was the man in the Berlin Bunker in May 1945?
How did Martin Bormann succeed in keeping the anti-Nazi generals from seizing the Reich?
And who was Woodpecker - the Soviet spy at the pinnacle of the Nazi war machine?
Colin Forbes' blistering novel retraces the last two years of a world at war, following the story of a British wing-commander who knew too much and a German secretary who knew much more.. to expose the most startling theory yet about the death throes of the Third Reich...
