Product Description

September 1942. The few men from the Sturmpionierbataillon to have survived the North African campaign have now been sent to the eastern front. Throughout the crucial fight for Stalingrad, a battle which claimed two million victims, human tolerance is tested beyond all limits. There is trench warfare, hand-to-hand combat for every single building, hunger and cold. Madness becomes the last place of refuge before death…
In these conditions, young Leutnant von Wetzland is forced to accept he cannot possibly keep up even the most basic of moral standards. And that applies to himself, as well as his men.

This book is based on extensive research, including numerous interviews with contemporary witnesses. But this is fiction rather than non-fiction. The author chose to keep close to the fiction, even when the two competed for priority, so that he could get inside the main characters’ minds – and look with them into the depths of the abyss. It’s this that gives the book its exceptional quality amongst the many other publications on Stalingrad, and sets it alight as a heartfelt, fiery protest against all war.

Christoph Fromm was born in 1958 in Stüttgart and has been a screenwriter since 1983. He came to fame with his work for the cinema, ‘Treffer’, ‘Spieler’, and ‘Die Katze’, and was rewarded with an Emmy and the Grimme Prize for his outstanding three-part docudrama, ‘Die Wölfe’. Since 2002 he has been Head of Screenwriting at the Filmakademie in Baden-Württemburg. In January 2006, he and Tina Liszius jointly founded Primero Verlag publishing house in Munich. His novel ‘Die Macht des Geldes’ was published by Primero, as are both the German and the English versions of the Stalingrad story.
