Product Details


"A great novel of one of the epic battles of all time–Stalingrad."—W.E.B. Griffin

"Robbins has done his homework….A historical thriller with the punch of a full metal jacket."—The Denver Post

"A frighteningly realistic patchwork depicting the long siege that changed the course of the war. Based on a true story, the novel deftly captures an extraordinary time and place in history…[in a] vivid, authentic representation of men of unusual skill and focus in the midst of a barbarous war."—Richmond-Times Dispatch

"Immensely exciting and terribly authentic. White-knuckle tension as the two most dangerous snipers in Europe hunt each other through the hell of Stalingrad."—Frederick Forsyth, author of The Day of the Jackal and The Fist of God

"I devoured it. The reporting and writing are amazing, and the snipers’ duel with its layers of subtle technique and imagined motivation is suspenseful and powerful. It’s a very good portrait of one of this century’s most important and terrible battles, and probably the most intense urban conflict in history."—Mark Bowden, author of Black Hawk Down

"a good candidate for the thriller of the summer award… gives a compelling and graphic sense of the heroism-filled nightmare called Stalingrad…A readable, gritty adventure story."—The New York Times

"Breakneck-fast and laced with real-life vignettes."—USA Today
