La guerra dei Courtney / Wilbur Smith ; con David Churchill ; traduzione di Sara Caraffini

HarperCollins, 2019

Résumé: Separati dalla guerra, a migliaia di miglia di distanza l'uno dall'altra, Saffron Courtney e Gerhard von Meerbach lottano per sopravvivere al conflitto che sta dilaniando l'Europa. Gerhard, ostile al regime nazista, è deciso a rimanere fedele ai propri ideali nonostante tutto e combatte per la madrepatria nella speranza di poterla liberare, un giorno, da Hitler. Ma quando la sua unità si ritrova coinvolta nell'inferno della battaglia di Stalingrado, si rende conto che le possibilità di uscirne vivo si affievoliscono di giorno in giorno. Saffron, che nel frattempo è stata reclutata dal SOE, l'Esecutivo Operazioni Speciali, e inviata nel Belgio occupato per scoprire in che modo i nazisti sono riusciti a infiltrarsi nella rete dell'organizzazione, deve trovare il modo di sfuggire ai nemici che le danno la caccia. Costretti ad affrontare forze malvagie e orrori indicibili, i due innamorati sono chiamati a prendere la decisione più difficile: sacrificare se stessi, o cercare di sopravvivere a ogni costo nella speranza che il destino, un giorno, permetta loro di ritrovarsi.

Résumé: As a member of the remarkable Courtney family, Leon Courtney knows how quickly fortunes can be won and lost. Over the course of more than two centuries, generations of his family have risen and fallen with the tides of history. Leon, too, has experienced his own share of triumph and pain. In the wake of his beloved wife’s death, the renowned big-game hunter is raising his young daughter, Saffron, alone in colonial Kenya. In the 1920s, the continent of Africa is a dangerous place. As Leon attempts to navigate the murky political waters of this most exquisitely beautiful and wildest of lands, his daughter grows into an independent and headstrong young woman bound for a far different life in Britain, as a student at Oxford. But over the course of more than two decades, spies, traitors, and adventurers will dog their every step. As the fitful years of peace lead to the outbreak of the Second World War—involving Africa once more—Leon and Saffron must fight for their survival . . . and that of their illustrious family.
