War Novel Depicts Depravity of Nazi Germany

A historical fiction book offers a glimpse into Nazi torture and brutality.

Spring City, Pennsylvania – WEBWIRE

The war novel shows what wars do the human beings.

Anyone who has read Captain Corelliís Mandolin by Louis de BerniŤres will also love Thomas W. Beckerís The Road At St. Liseau: A Novel of Espionage in World War II (iUniverse, 2015), a romantic spy thriller that brings the horrors of the Second World War vividly to life. †

Set in Nazi-occupied France, The Road At St. Liseau explores themes that recur in most war stories: war, suffering, hate, and inhumanity. The novel carries a graphic and unnerving description of Nazi brutality as evident in the Germansí torture of Captain Robert Marsden, an American bombardier and one of the two main characters of the story (the other is Lisa Jardin, a nurse and member of the French Resistance who later becomes his wife).

While on an espionage mission, the Germans capture Robert and subject him to their brutality. In a horrific torture scene, Robert is beaten and tortured with knives, cigarettes, and ropes. He sustains broken bones, cigarette burns and open knife slashes on his skin and is hanged naked and unconscious. He barely survives the torture his captors inflict on him.

Robertís torture, however, is not the only thing that should shock readers of The Road At St. Liseau. There are gritty accounts of rape and degradation, based on documented events that provide an insiderís look at wartime reality and a testament to the depravity of Nazi Germany.

Beckerís The Road At St. Liseau: A Novel of Espionage in World War II will be displayed at the upcoming 2017 Frankfurt International Book Fair on October 11-15 in Frankfurt, Germany.
