An authentic novel about the uprising of 17 June. – SUPERillu

Well informed and thrilling. As someone who experienced and suffered first-hand through that 17th of June and the days before and after, I can only welcome the fact that these dramatic events and their background have been snatched from oblivion. – Hans-Joachim Martens, Idea Spektrum

An excellent, sweeping novel that veritably sucks the reader into the past and leaves them feeling as if they were at the heart of the action. This is due on the one hand to the subject matter, which is still relatively ›untouched‹ and exciting in itself, and on the other to the author’s storytelling, which manages to whisk the reader away and take them through the events in a manner only very few writers can achieve. – Birgit Borloni,
