HITLER'S LAST GASP
America faces a grave danger: Hitler has devised a weapon that could kill millions. A German U-boat is making its way towards the US, carrying a weapon that will release a deadly virus on the country. U-boat skipper Brinker, refusing to allow the Nazi hijackers to commit such atrocities, stages an uprising. But the relentless Standartenfuhrer Kantz has survived, and he will stop at nothing to see the weapon unleashed.
Based on Manfred's deep knowledge of German U-boats and his personal experience with the German Navy and allied troops at the end of the war, this page-tuner on the order of "Hunt for Red October" explores the rift between the Nazi SS and the German Navy. Between the lines: a lesson for today.
