Jacobsen, Roy, 1954- author; Bartlett, Don, translator; Shaw, Donald, translator

Caught between the exhilarating dash of Manstein's desperate, gallant gambit - a latter-day Charge of the Light Brigade - and the piteous suffering of the doomed 6th Army, 'Borders' is a story of impossible choices in a theatre of total war. Family love, national identity, even military genius, count for nothing in the face of war's own almost sentient appetites

With its mix of vivid characters, real and fictional, struggling to make sense of the excesses of war and its aftermath, this is a strange but compelling novel. I highly recommend it
