About the Book

The Enemy Above: A Novel of World War II

In 1940’s Ukraine Anton Schostak lives a simple life of a peasant farmer. But to the east the Nazi war machine is headed toward Anton’s peaceful existence. He is Jewish and the Nazi’s comb the countryside looking for Jews to make Ukraine Judenfrei --- free of Jews.
 
With his father off fighting with the Polish cavalry, Anton must escape with his grandmother, Bubbe. As the Nazi’s draw closer and closer, freedom becomes a dangerous game. Major Karl Von Dueson of the Gestapo, the Nazi secret police, is convinced that he can advance his career by capturing as many Jews as possible. But Anton and his Grandmother continue to elude him.
 
When they take refuge in a nearby cave the Major discovers them and Bubbe is captured. Now Anton must leave the safety of the cave and find his grandmother. When he manages to free her, Von Duesen, now nearly unhinged, will stop at nothing to find them. Anton must use every bit of energy and skill to stay one step ahead of a madman.
