"This is the second in the Konsalik war series which began with 'Doctor of Stalingrad'...Konsalik once again captures the appalling and often gruesome life of a Russian labour camp. He recounts the experiences of Dr. Deutschmann who experiments on himself to avoid conscription; the doctor and his battalion are sent to the front under the command of Sergeant Krull. The plots and sub-plots unfold a harsh landscape of life which, after many an ordeal, leaves the blinded doctor and his wife reinstated which allows them to continue their beloved research."
