Publisher Description

Out of Africa meets Pearl Harbor in the gripping new Courtney family adventure from perennial bestseller and fan favourite Wilbur Smith.
In a triumphant return to his much-loved Courtney series, Wilbur Smith introduces us to the bravest new member of the famed family, Saffron Courtney.
Saffron grows up on a sprawling Kenyan estate, under the watchful eye of her father, prominent businessman and distinguished war veteran Leon Courtney. Her childhood is idyllic, until a family tragedy forces her to grow up much faster than necessary. As she grows into a spirited teenager, her thirst for knowledge and adventure leads her to England, where she finds herself inevitably drawn into the heart of the gathering storm in the lead-up to World War II.
Gerhard von Meerback is the privileged and idealistic younger brother of Konrad von Meerbach, heir to an industrial fortune, and vocal supporter of the Nazi Party. Gerhard struggles to stay true to his principles in an increasingly cruel world. His friendship with a Jewish man places him in danger, and forces him to take a stand against the forces of evil that have overtaken his country and his family. But, unknown to him, he is caught in a trap that could cost him everything he holds dear.
As the Second World War looms over them all, Saffron and Gerhard's worlds collide - but will there be more to unite them than tear them apart?
A love story in the time of heroes, War Cry is the latest breathtaking episode in Wilbur Smith's epic account of one beloved family.

It has been a few years since I have read this author and I can’t remember why I stopped. This book has brought me back to wanting to experience more. The only thing I have to find out is which book follows this one❤️

I have read almost all of Wilbur Smith’s output and have never been disappointed. Each time I finish a book I feel as though I am leaving behind new found friends and/or enemies. I then eagerly await the next instalment. So it is for War Cry. I long to continue the adventures of Saffron, her love and her family.
