Captain Dieter Neukirk, once a protégé of Faust’s, is more concerned with saving the lives of his remaining men than in sacrificing them in a fanatical last stand. Meanwhile, Elsa Klein, Dieter’s lover and the chief social worker at a Berlin hospital, is engaged in her own dangerous work, providing medical care and identity papers to hidden Jews in the city.
American Captain Mack Mackenzie, pulled from a military hospital before his wounds are healed, is assigned to investigate reports of a secret Nazi operation. Wanting only to make it home alive, Mack finds himself in a life-and-death struggle with unlikely allies and a ferociously determined opponent. Americans and Germans alike are drawn to a hilltop in the remote German countryside, where they find themselves between powerful armies and forced into a terrible decision that could end one war or begin a new one.

captured the time
Would you listen to On Desperate Ground again? Why?
Probably the best book James Benn has written. He captures the desperation, guilt and consequences of the terrible choices people made. Considering what is going on in our political world right now this is a very relevant book for our time.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I already knew the subject matter in a factual way but the characters made it personal. The fear and hopeless feelings of being swept along with no choice but to go along was developed well in some of the piviotal characters.
What about Barry Press’s performance did you like?
Good narrator could easily listen to him again.
