Read Chapter 1

In 1912, failing at Cambridge in pre-law, Eric Foster rebels against his father’s rigid plans for his future as a barrister with the family’s London law firm. In his search to control his own destiny he falls in love with the daughter of a minor German baron. To prove his worth to Brigitte’s aristocratic family, he exploits old family connections of his German mother to buy a commission in an elite Prussian cavalry regiment. By joining the most respected, most powerful stratum of Imperial German society, he opens the way to marry his beloved only months before the outbreak of World War One, the war to end all wars.

After the ‘War to End All Wars’, the German post-war recovery in 1933 still staggers under the crushing terms of the Treaty of Versailles. Erich von Schellendorf, a career cavalry officer, has two desires in life: that his beloved wife, Britt, can break free from the psychological turmoil that prevents her from living life to the full; and that he can ride on the German equestrian team in the 1936 Olympics.

Both dreams seem reasonable, until a British agent named Trudell blackmails Erich into doing a small job for Special Intelligence Services. And a political rabble-rouser named Adolf Hitler seizes absolute control of the German government.

In Berlin, January 1939, Major-General Erich von Schelledorf meets Celia Ashton at the British Ambassador’s annual New Year’s Levée, and steps into a casual affair. By August, on the eve of Hitler’s inevitable war, they are dangerously in love.

Caught in the brink of war...
...between his German wife who will not live with him and the Englishwoman who loves him...
...between his English roots and his love of Germany...
...between British Military Intelligence and his career in the Wehrmacht...
...between his love of the Army and his hatred of Hitler... 

Erich finds himself cornered by the appalling reality of Nazi control over the country, and by knowing that out of uniform he has no identity. Compelled to pursue his own troubled conscience, he maintains a delicate balance of honour through the most destructive war in history.

Hitler’s war is over. Lieutenant-General Erich von Schellendorf of the German General Staff is a prisoner-of-war.

Exhausted by the collapse of every aspect of his life, deeply disturbed that he could not moderate the utter destruction of Germany, his only compensation is that he has survived the most destructive war in history. His first desire is to see his miracle child, a ‘war baby’ born to the Englishwoman he once loved and who may not wish ever to see him again.

But now that the guns have stopped, in going forward, Erich must ultimately answer his own conscience, and face his personal ghosts.
