The Year Is '42

(2004)
A novel by

 

"Wholly original and moving... Portrays history as the spymaster of us all."
John Le Carré


The year is 1942 and Europe is besieged by war. Germany has defeated most of Europe, is ruling France, and approaching Russia. Three lives are bound together by destiny, although by all appearances could not be further apart. In occupied Paris, Karl, a German officer, has realised that he can no longer ignore the war. An adventurer and traveller, Karl has always avoided politics for the good life, but lately he has begun to question the regime he serves. In Germany, Hans, a fellow officer and old friend of Karl's, has found a way out of the same dilemma. But he knows - with chilling certainty - that his decision can only lead to death. And in Kiev, where the fighting is at its pitch, Katia, a doctor, tries to hold onto her old life as she waits anxiously for her husband's return from one of Stalin's labour camps.
