The Eastern Front 1943. A massive Russian offensive has fragmented the German frontlines forcing them into a fighting retreat back towards the Oder River to establish defensive bridgeheads in an attempt to slow the Soviet masses. However elements of the 1st SS LAH Panzer division have managed to hold their positions within these lines and have withstood the brunt of the Soviet onslaught. Due to sketchy communications they are unaware that a major retreat has taken place as they continue to press forward into the increasing Red Army hoards, often forced into bloody hand to hand combat. Will word reach these men that they are in fact alone and pushing on in the wrong direction? Or will they realise their situation only to be engaged in a deadly race backwards through enemy held territory strewn with death and destruction to reach the Oder River and relative safety before the Russians reach its banks?

About the author

I was born in 1964 near the town of Mulheim West Germany whilst my father was serving in the British Army as a Sergeant Major. I was the second of two sons, the first of which went on to serve as air crew in the Royal Air Force. Around 1967 my father was posted back to England where we settled once again near Durham. My life was good and secure with plenty of encouragement from my immediate family. By 1971 our army life was over and we were on the move again to live near family on the south coast where we still remain today. My schooling was not dynamic in any way as I floated along in the mainstream achieving average results at best in most subjects. The most vivid memory that remains with me from my time at school was being paid a compliment in front of the whole class by our most hard line teacher at the time for a fictional story I had written about a mongoose and a cobra, quite something at the time for a child usually unnoticed in the class from day-to-day. From school I went to work like most young people, to do any job I could get at the time but always hoped that one day I would be able to achieve a reasonable stature in life. Through relentless hard work and complete focus I eventually entered the motor industry and worked my way up to position of Dealer Principal in a company that I have spent the last twelve years in order to support my wife and son, and also my passion for WW2 History–a passion that I have had for as long as I can remember. Seven years ago I joined a WW2 Living History Re-enactment Group based in the South East to live out my dreams of experiencing times gone by. I regularly attend public shows around the country as well as offers of film work. It has been at these events, where I have met elderly veterans from various countries, and from listening to their varied experiences combined with my own, that sowed the seed of my fledgling WW2 Eastern Front action novel “Alles Fur Deutschland”.

THE BLOCKBUSTER HIT—Over two million copies sold! A New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly Bestseller

“Poignant, engrossing.”—People • “Lisa Wingate takes an almost unthinkable chapter in our nation’s history and weaves a tale of enduring power.”—Paula McLain

Memphis, 1939. Twelve-year-old Rill Foss and her four younger siblings live a magical life aboard their family’s Mississippi River shantyboat. But when their father must rush their mother to the hospital one stormy night, Rill is left in charge—until strangers arrive in force. Wrenched from all that is familiar and thrown into a Tennessee Children’s Home Society orphanage, the Foss children are assured that they will soon be returned to their parents—but they quickly realize the dark truth. At the mercy of the facility’s cruel director, Rill fights to keep her sisters and brother together in a world of danger and uncertainty.

Aiken, South Carolina, present day. Born into wealth and privilege, Avery Stafford seems to have it all: a successful career as a federal prosecutor, a handsome fiancé, and a lavish wedding on the horizon. But when Avery returns home to help her father weather a health crisis, a chance encounter leaves her with uncomfortable questions and compels her to take a journey through her family’s long-hidden history, on a path that will ultimately lead either to devastation or to redemption.

Based on one of America’s most notorious real-life scandals—in which Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country—Lisa Wingate’s riveting, wrenching, and ultimately uplifting tale reminds us how, even though the paths we take can lead to many places, the heart never forgets where we belong.

Publishers Weekly’s #3 Longest-Running Bestseller of 2017 • Winner of the Southern Book Prize • If All Arkansas Read the Same Book Selection

“Sure to be one of the most compelling books you pick up this year. . . . Wingate is a master-storyteller, and you’ll find yourself pulled along as she reveals the wake of terror and heartache that is Georgia Tann’s legacy.”—Parade
WAR? DEATH AND DESTRUCTION? VIOLENCE, HATRED, INEXPRESSIBLE GRIEF? PEOPLES PITTED AGAINST EACH OTHER, TO THE DEATH? WHY ON EARTH SHOULD I WANT TO READ ABOUT IT? THERE’S ENOUGH IN THE MEDIA EVERY DAY, SURELY? YES: BUT THIS IS DIFFERENT. The stories in this Anthology aim to give a vivid insight, through a fascinating mixture of history, reminiscence and fiction, into life during WWII: for those at the front, those left behind, the young at school, the old in the twilight of their years, parents, lovers, spouses, families, colleagues; Britons, Germans, Irish, Kenyans, French, eastern Europeans and Americans (plus the odd ‘undesirable alien’!). These pages see householders struggling to maintain a semblance of normality; young men reluctant to volunteer; soldiers determined to win; acts of generosity, acts of cowardice. In these pages, there is violence – impossible to avoid in an Anthology dedicated to the memory of war – but there is also humour and romance, suspense and emotion, heroism and daring. Even the paranormal puts in an appearance (as one might say). The action is set variously in France, Britain, Eire, Kenya, Russia, Poland ... You are guaranteed hours of stimulation, enjoyment and fruitful relaxation with a book devoted to one of the defining events of our times. STARE INTO THE PAST WITH THE EYES OF THOSE GRIPPED BY ITS DRAMA. All the stories have been especially written for this Anthology by writers experienced in their field. Pneuma Springs is proud to present it to commemorate seventy years after the end of hostilities. Contributors: Karl Brockmann, Annie Coyle Martin, Julius Falconer, Peter Good, Neal James Andrew Malloy, Steve Morris, Neil Morton, Ron Ooms, Chris Pownall, Derek Rosser, Avril Saunders, Derek Smith, Louise Wilkinson Book reviews online: PublishedBestsellers website.
