Courtney's War

Wilbur Smith


ISBN 9781785766480


An epic tale of war and passion. Two star-crossed lovers must fight for their countries in the hope they may survive the war and find each other amidst the ruins of Europe.

In War Cry, we were introduced to the newest member of the famous family, the brilliant and brave Saffron Courtney. Saffron meets and falls in love with the idealistic Gerhard von Meerbach, who is struggling to come to terms with the path his family and country are taking in 1930s Germany, only for them to be cruelly separated by the arrival of WW2.

In Courtney's War, we follow Saffron and Gerhard throughout the war as they fight for their countries in the hope that one day peace will come and they will find each other once again. Saffron spends the war as an agent in the Special Operations Executive, risking her life in daredevil missions behind enemy lines. To protect his family, Gerhard must hide his opposition to the war and the Nazi party, and work as a fighter pilot. Ultimately his opinions and hatred for the brutal regime will lead him into very dangerous waters.

A dramatic, compelling adventure, filled with truly gripping scenes of the brutality of war. It's also a story of love. Love for one's country and the undying love of two people for each other against all the odds.
