A lone soldier wearing a German uniform stumbles into a British military camp in the North African desert with an incredible story to tell. He is the sole survivor of an undercover operation meant to infiltrate the Nazi stronghold of Tobruk, trading on the soldiers’ perfect fluency in German. However, this man is not British-born, but a German Jew seeking revenge for the deaths of his family back home in Berlin.
As the allies advance into Europe, the young lieutenant is brought to Sicily to recover from his wounds. There he is recruited by a British major to join a newly formed commando unit composed of German and Austrian Jews training for a top-secret mission at a nearby camp in the Sicilian hills. They are all “lost boys,” driven not by patriotism but by vengeance.
Drawing on meticulous research into this unique group of World War II heroes, “The Last of the Seven” is a lyrical, propulsive historical novel perfect for fans of historical fiction.
This event includes a book signing and reception.
