In this frightening 5 star story, Jack Chambers is a World War II veteran, and he is carrying a very dark secret. Any soldier who fights in a war would obviously carry a great many secrets, scars, and nightmares. Jack Chambers, however, carries much more than most war veterans and only one other man shares this secret with Jack, his name is Rabbi Jacob Goldstein.
Germany’s Hürtgen Forest is a death trap for soldiers. More and more soldiers are sent to fight the Germans only to be killed, and no ground is being gained for the soldiers fighting against Hitler and his Nazis. Jack Chambers finds himself and his men at this very place, and what he finds there is almost too much to believe. When you kill an enemy, you expect that he will stay down, but these enemies do not.
Chambers comes to understand that this is not just a fight to the death, but a fight for every single soul on the earth, as he also comes to understand that he has not been brought to it by coincidence. This isn’t merely kill or be killed. This is kill the enemy or watch everything you know and love be utterly annihilated. Nazis are only the beginning. The Germans have gone too far, and they have harnessed ancient occult powers that can be controlled by no one.
Jack and the men who are his family during war will battle like never before. New allies and friendships will be made, and enemies and betrayals are around every corner. Against all odds, Jack and his men must win this war for all of mankind.
Brian Moreland truly impressed me with this novel. His research on World War II, battles, religions, and occults had to have been extensive. The battle scenes were intensely authentic, enough so that I caught myself clenching my teeth many times. I also enjoyed the camaraderie between Jack Chambers and his soldiers. This book was an obvious choice for me as I love history, horror stories, and occult twists. This book has it all and made me feel like a kid in a candy store. Brian Moreland has impressed me, again!
During World War II, Germany’s Hürtgen Forest was a killing field. But there was something worse than the enemy in the mist. An ancient power was waiting to prey upon those who opposed the Third Reich.
Jack survived the war, but he still has nightmares about Hürtgen—and the unholy horrors he battled there. Now he is determined to reveal the truth and entrusts the task to his grandson, Sean. But Sean’s quest sets him in a deadly race against those who wish to bury the truth forever—and those who plan to use it to unleash hell on Earth.
