About the Author

David L. Robbins is also the author of Souls to Keep. A former attorney and freelance writer, he now writes full-time in Richmond, Virginia.


Robbins¡s historically accurate best seller War of the Rats re-creates one of the most important but least-known battles of World War II: Stalingrad, the bloodiest campaign in the history of war. In the heart of the wrecked Russian city Zaitsev, a Russian sniper so demoralizes the German officer corps that they bring from Berlin their best sharpshooter, the Headmaster, the man who trains Germany¡s marksmen. For the listener, life in Stalingrad¡s crucible becomes a battle of wits as two killers go one on one. But the author does not neglect the impact of the battle on other participants. The story is unforgettable, and the skillful narration by George Guidall makes this work a classic. Essential for virtually every library.¢James L. Dudley, Westhampton Beach, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

"A great novel of one of the epic battles of all time--Stalingrad."-W.E.B. Griffin

"Robbins has done his homework....A historical thriller with the punch of a full metal jacket."-The Denver Post

"A frighteningly realistic patchwork depicting the long siege that changed the course of the war. Based on a true story, the novel deftly captures an extraordinary time and place in history...[in a] vivid, authentic representation of men of unusual skill and focus in the midst of a barbarous war."-Richmond-Times Dispatch

"Immensely exciting and terribly authentic. White-knuckle tension as the two most dangerous snipers in Europe hunt each other through the hell of Stalingrad."-Frederick Forsyth, author of The Day of the Jackal and The Fist of God

"I devoured it. The reporting and writing are amazing, and the snipers' duel with its layers of subtle technique and imagined motivation is suspenseful and powerful. It's a very good portrait of one of this century's most important and terrible battles, and probably the most intense urban conflict in history."-Mark Bowden, author of Black Hawk Down

"a good candidate for the thriller of the summer award... gives a compelling and graphic sense of the heroism-filled nightmare called Stalingrad...A readable, gritty adventure story."-The New York Times

"Breakneck-fast and laced with real-life vignettes."-USA Today
