"This absorbing, well-crafted tale…is a haunting description of the tragedy and irony of war…In this vivid narrative, the awful cacophony of war comes to life…the skilled author succeeds without moralistic preaching in highlighting the harsh reality, the utter misery, and the heartbreak of war in this intricate but fascinating book." VOYA
In this companion novel to Flames of the Tiger, set during the Battle of Stalingrad, three participants—one Russian soldier, one German soldier and a boy caught in the middle—struggle to survive the largest battle in human history. None of them know how their fates will be intertwined as the cataclysm engulfs them.
"The action-filled text flows easily from steppe to city battle scenes…Wilson takes an overlooked moment or perspective in history and makes it come alive." Albany Public Library, NY
"Four Steps to Death is a thoroughly anti-war novel…Wilson shows just how miserable and futile the practice of war is for those who must fight." Quill & Quire
