Description

Paris, 1939. Torn apart by war, Saffron Courtney and Gerhard von Meerbach are thousands of miles apart, both struggling for their lives. Gerhard - despite his objections to the Nazi regime - is fighting for the Fatherland, hoping to one day have the opportunity to rid Germany of Hitler and his cronies. But as his unit is thrown into the hellish attrition of the Battle of Stalingrad, he knows his chances of survival are dwindling by the day. 

Meanwhile, Saffron - recruited by the Special Operations Executive and sent to occupied Belgium to discover how the Nazis have infiltrated SOE's network - soon finds herself being hunted by Germany's most ruthless spymaster. Confronted by evil beyond their worst imaginings, the lovers must each make the hardest choice of all: sacrifice themselves, or do whatever they can to survive, hoping that one day they will be reunited. 

Courtney's War is an epic story of courage, betrayal and undying love that takes the listener to the very heart of a world at war.

Mr Smith does it again

This outstanding story is beautifully written and blends verifiable, historically accurate events and places, and historically genuine persons - both good and bad - into a powerful and realistic WWII novel that spans continents. It is the perfect sequel to the Courtney series, following seamlessly from the events set in motion by Smith’s previous novel, “War cry.” The strong female lead, is another excellent feature. Moreover, it is a tale with many lessons for our current. The narrator does an outstanding job of bringing the characters and events to life, though I confess I read the hard cover book as well as having listened to the narration. Highly Recommend book!

Good series. Excellent narrator

I love love Wilbur Smith. He never disappoints. From Africa to WW2, he can really tell a gripping story.

great series and absolutely great volume

Perhaps my favorite war story of all time. Those with anti-sematic thoughts should read this story. Heart breaking and passionate with beautiful visions of Africa and Europe. Truly a masterpiece in my eyes.

Rollicking good fun, not the most original, but you won’t mind

Rollicking good fun, not the most original story line, but you won’t mind. A decent espionage story, set in WWII.

I've never been so sad to end a book

Wilbur Smith is a god among men. His books only get better and better. The way he weaves his riveting stories in with historical events is unrivaled.

A good history lesson, but...

This was more of a history lesson of the rigorous hardships of WWII. Very little of Smith's normal adventure or Courtney flair. Not a bad read, but it left me feeling like I had attended a lecture. None of the cruelty of the fictional characters was avenged, which is a large part of what makes Smith's novels so satisfying to me. It ended abruptly, unabashedly aimed at selling the next book, which is a shame.
