Sudetenland© is the premiere novel by author George T. Chronis. The book delivers suspenseful and sweeping historical fiction set against Central European intrigue during the late 1930s leading up to 1938′s Munich Conference. The characters are the smart and sometimes wise-cracking men and women of this era – the foreign correspondents, intelligence officers, diplomats and career military – who are on the front lines of that decade’s most dangerous political crisis. With three million ethnic Germans in Bohemia at stake, Adolph Hitler’s unshakeable will demands that the Sudetenland be ripped from Czechoslovakia and joined with Germany. The novel takes readers behind the scenes into the deliberations and high drama taking place within the major capitals of Europe as the continent hurtles toward the crucible of a shooting war.
Fascinating read with alot of historical background that pulled you into this story and kept you flipping the pages in suspense. The plot moves quickly along keeping you intrigued with well defined characters and great imagery to help emerge yourself in the story. Anyone interested in History and /or World War II events will eat this book up. I adored the way George managed to weave together the tragedy of war, depression and politics with romance, love and hope. Great all around read.
