Russia, early 1942
At Charkov, the wounded survivors of elite SS Assault Regiment Wotan, have been forced to surrender. Von Dodenburg, their second-in-command, knows the plans of a further Soviet attack. It is vital he should get them back to Army headquarters. But how? He is wounded and is under close guard. Now, the survivors begin the March of Death back to the rear, dying like flies in the snow. Von Dodenburg despairs.
But he has not reckoned with those two old running mates Sergeant Schulze and Corporal Matz. Together the two of them and a handful of those who have escaped the débâcle at Charkov plan to rescue their beloved C.O. They fight Cossacks, the women's 'Legion of Sudden Death', and Partisans, along with all the other hazards of the terrible war in Russia. Will they succeed, against all the odds - so that von Dodeburg can live to fight another day?
The latest in Leo Kessler's ever-popular Wotan series, March of Death is packed with soldiers' humour and off-duty exploits, thrills and spills, set against an authentic backdrop of the war in Russia.
