by Lee Knafa - £13.99 The Liverpool Editing Company (2019)
paperback ISBN 13: 9781999300524 | ISBN 10: 1999300521
Liverpool writer Lee Knafa blends fiction with fact to present the largely untold story of black soldiers fighting for Nazi Germany during World War Two and the many 'grey' areas of Nazi racial policy concerning black people and those of mixed race.
Fresh out of military school and thrown into a war that he doesn't fully understand, mixed race Wehrmacht officer Josef Herzog must quickly come to terms with the fact that in Hitler's Germany, citizens' rights are only skin-deep.
After finding himself a target of the notorious SS, he is forced to fight a battle that transcends duty or glory, as he and his fellow members of the self-styled 'War Council' struggle to protect his freedom to exist in a country that has lost sight of its humanity.
