They hunt a monster to correct a horrific injustice
On the eve of the Nazi invasion of Poland, three men, two Canadians and a German, boldly step on a train filled with Wehrmacht military. They cross the Greater Reich to wreak revenge on a former Wehrmacht officer.
Billy LaChance and Lum Del Luca, along with German, Josef Weiss, do the impossible and cross the Pyrenees Mountains with three sacks of rare gold coins, stolen from looters. They evade Spanish and French patrols, aware that capture means a firing squad or a concentration camp.
In Switzerland they learn that their target, Rolf von Huber, now serves in the SS in Cottbus Germany. Rolf’s busy putting the finishing touches on the extermination of all undesirables once the war begins.
His former rivals have a different plan for him: to right an unforgivable wrong.
I found Brutal from the Fray to be well researched, and interlaced with real historical figures, and tells of the barbarity, valor and great heartbreak of an unparalleled war many call the last great moral crusade. It details battles fought with both antiquated arms and state-of-the-art weaponary. The story overlaps with the pleasure of an historical novel, and dramatic confrontation as three freedom fighters defy great odds and show their passion and grit in the quest to right an unforgivable wrong. I highly recommend it.
