About the Author

David L. Robbins is the author of Scorched Earth, The End of War, War of the Rats, and Souls to Keep. He lives in Richmond, Virginia, and teaches novel writing at Virginia Commonwealth University.


Robbins (War of the Rats) provides a richly textured glimpse of the largest battle in history. The epic struggle at Kursk was Hitler's last real effort at conquering the Soviet Union during World War II. What makes this piece of historical fiction stand out are its rich characters: Captain Luis de Vega, a once famous Spanish bullfighter who fights for the SS in command of a monster Tiger tank while trying to regain his sense of self-worth after being wounded; Colonel Bright, a German Intelligence officer in the SS who spies for the Russians in a bid to rid Germany of Hitler; Dimitri Berko, a Russian Cossack who drives a T-34 tank and fights the Nazi invaders with his two children-one a fellow tanker and the other, his daughter, a pilot and later a partisan. Together these individuals make this work memorable. George Guidall's narration is superb, as usual, as he captures the nature of war. Highly recommended for all public and academic libraries.-Scott R. DiMarco, Herkimer Cty. Community Coll., NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

"Like War of the Rats, Robbins uses his exhaustive research more as a background for a well-told tale with interesting and illuminating characters that ensnare the reader while at the same time giving them an inside look...You can't ask more from historical fiction."
--Denver Post
