Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on official American, German,and French histories; personal memoirs; and author interviews; The Last Battle is the nearly unbelievable true story of the most improbable battle of World War II—a tale of unlikely allies, bravery and cowardice, and desperate combat between implacable enemies.

“Steven Spielberg, how did you miss this story? ...Part Where Eagles Dare, part Guns of Navarone, this story is as exciting as it is far-fetched, [yet] every word of The Last Battle is true.”—Andrew Roberts,Daily Beast

“Harding has brought this implausible story to life.”—San Diego Union Tribune

“A page-turner.”—Roanoke Times

Synopsis:

The true story of US and German soldiers fighting side by side in the final days of WWII

Synopsis:

May, 1945. Hitler is dead, the Third Reich is little more than smoking rubble, and no GI wants to be the last man killed in action against the Nazis.

The Last Battle tells the nearly unbelievable story of the unlikeliest battle of the war, when a small group of American tankers, led by Captain Lee, joined forces with German soldiers to fight off fanatical SS troops seeking to capture Castle Itter and execute the stronghold's VIP prisoners. It is a tale of unlikely allies, startling bravery, jittery suspense, and desperate combat between implacable enemies.
