The Road to Freedom is a World War II novel. It’s a really well written one by a debut author. Many of the World War II books I’ve read include a bit of romance to break up the hard things that happen in the story. This one doesn’t really. I did like the way the author had the characters do flashbacks to important times in their lives. I loved the way the reader gets a sense of what the character is like and why from these flashbacks.

The main two characters in this one are Hans Kohler and Christ

I loved this book. I started reading it on an airplane and I couldn't put it down. I finished reading it a few days later sitting next to the Berlin Wall at the Topography of Terror museum in Berlin.

What kind of person would you be in war?
How do you stay true to your beliefs when faced with tragedy and certain death?

The Road to Freedom takes place at the end of World War II in Germany. The Russians and Americans are closing in on Berlin. The characters in the story have to decide how to survive

Shawn Pollock, author of The Road to Freedom, has written an interesting and captivating story from the perspective of two German’s stuck behind enemy lines during the end of WWII. This story is not only intriguing because of the perspective it is written from, but also because one of the main characters is a Mormon.

Wow. This was a book unlike anything I've read. It follows two German soldiers as they rely on each other to survive after their unit has been destroyed behind Russian lines. It is interspersed with flashbacks as the reader learns what brought each man to this moment. One is a teenager and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; the other is his commanding officer and jaded from years at war. Each of their perspectives is fascinating. A lot of military and WWII terms are use ...more

A story about two men behind enemy lines and their struggle to survive--not just to survive but to escape. It has a ring of truth to it. It made me wonder if it were based on an actual event.

It's solidly written and a good book by a first time author.
