This novel evolved over three decades, during two of which I lived and worked in Berlin, Germany. It incorporates extensive primary and secondary research conducted in what was then East and West Germany. In fact, I was the first Westerner to gain access to certain relevant materials in East Germany. I also conducted interviews with well over 100 survivors of Nazi Germany.

Some of those I interviewed turned into friends, and we carried on unending dialogues about the subjects and themes described

Written by Helena P. Schrader, this book is set, as you would expect, in the 1930's and 40's and follows the lives of various German families as they muddle through the war with growing resentment for the man in charge of their country. Main characters include Baron Philip von Feldburg,, Marianne Moldenaeur, Alexandra v. Mollwitz and their various families.

Based on over 10 years of research and interviews with numerous survivors of World War Two, Helena has created a fictional work around the we

I think I’ve mentioned before how much I love to read anything historical and especially anything that has to do with WWII. Hitler, while one of the most horrible figures in history, does make for interesting reading.

Hitlers Demons revolves around one of the many failed attempts to assassinate Hitler in July, 1944 by military conspirators. The military plan, which was code-named ”Valkyrie”, involved senior officers of the German Home Army as they tried to gain power in a coup and free Germany fr

The description on the book’s website indicates that it is a, “Novel of historical fiction about the German resistance to Nazism in WWII and of the Valkyrie Plot to assassinate Adolph Hitler.”

This book centered around a soldier by the name of Philip Baron von Felburg, who worked for the German Home Army which was a deeply undercover operation that on the surface was supportive of Hitler, all the while plotting his assassination. Surrounding Philip was his family, his co-workers, fellow officers

This is a sponsored review. I received a free copy of the book and compensation to read and review. I was under no obligation to post a positive review and all my opinions are my own and honest.

I debated between a four or five star review for a couple minutes on account of the fact that I loved the story and the uniqueness of the story, but didn't like the way it ended. Five stars wins because it was truly a great read, and something that has not been told enough, especially in fiction. If you

I read Hitler's Demons, which was the Kindle version of An Obsolete Honor. Hitler's Demons is not your typical novel. Instead, it's more of a historical fiction reference guide, filled with deep characters and heart-wrenching side stories. Ultimately the reader realizes what sacrifices were made by those who wanted to overthrow the Nazi regime and how hard life was during the WWII era. I learned quite a bit about German culture and dialect, although I'm definitely no WWII scholar yet. At the end ...more

This was one of the most interesting books I have read, very detailed, very accurate, (I found by researching for some time)
It was a new experience and a new type of book for me and for my blog and even always being fascinated by this era, it did take a little longer then normal for me to read this book. (it is a little long, and very detailed). But, I enjoyed reading this and was amazed to read about the author and her own life.
It touches base on every aspect of the Germans, the war, the peopl

Anyone who has seen movies or documentary's that tell the history of what happened to so many innocent people during Hitler's regime know how horrific and despicable this man was! However, we rarely see or hear about those German citizens who during his reign where opposed to his beliefs but could not speak out for fear of their own lives or of their families. I have always wondered if there were any citizens who wanted to stand up and fight and Helena has answered this with this fictional story ...more
