Book 2 in the Songs in the Night series.
World War II. The army of the Third Reich. Konrad Reichmann, a model of Hitler's youth movement, becomes disillusioned as the reality of the Russian front bears no resemblance to the glory the Fuhrer portrayed in his speeches. Even lower than his unit's morale are supplies and fuel as Russia's winter sets in. When the slaughter of innocents opens his eyes to the true nature of the Reich leadership, Konrad embarks upon a bold and dangerous plan to put a stop to the horror and change the course of history.
