October, 1939: War has been declared, but until the armies massed on either side of the French/German border engage, all is quiet on the Western Front.
But just because its quiet doesn’t mean that it’s not deadly.
There are those who believe the war no one wants to fight should be brought to a swift conclusion, even if it means treachery.
A year ago, Conrad de Lancey came within seconds of assassinating Hitler. Now the British Secret Service want him to go back into Europe and make contact with a group of German officers they believe are plotting a coup.
But this is a Shadow War. And the shadows are multiplying. And it’s not only disaffected Germans who are prepared to betray their country to save it.
My Review
Shadows Of War is a spy novel during the phoney war of September 1939 – May 1940. The author Michael Ridpath tried to tamper with historical events as little as possible. How much of this novel is based on the truth? It’s a fair question. Michael Ridpath answer this question in Shadows Of War. Micheal explains in this novel to the readers how he got the idea for this novel.
