British Warlocks vs Nazi Supermen in World War 2. It ended up as interesting as it sounds, with good detail on each side's actions and plans. It avoided the "we are invincible" protagonists and hit my soft spot for the "Man, we're barely keeping up with this" protagonists.

My one complaint was I found the majority of the British characters completely bland and unmemorable. Even by the end of the book I had trouble keeping track of who was who (with the exception of Marsh), as the rest just faded into the background. The nazis were very interesting, though I would've preferred some more insight into Gretel's mind (although I suppose NOT having that is part of her character).

The romance & wedding in the book happened so fast it made my head spin, I thought it had to be a setup for some other plot line (like a betrayal), but nope. I wish it could've been integrated better with the narrative.
