Masters of War by Conrad John (Merrell Vannier)

Jewish activist Ben Komorosky narrowly escapes 1933 Nazi Germany for his role in fomenting a worldwide protest and boycott of German goods. Working with British military intelligence, Ben uses a mail drop in London to cover his tracks. After his two brothers are taken to a concentration camp in 1938, Ben infiltrates an ultra-secret assassination network based in New York City, hoping to utilize its multi-national resources to rescue his brothers while also gathering information about the network for his British military intelligence handlers. As the world collapses into war, Ben learns that his saboteur operation is connected to powerful Wall Street interests profiting from Hitler’s war machine – the same interests who tipped off the Reich about his clandestine activities inside Nazi Germany. This fictional story is based on real, but little-known events that shaped WWII and its aftermath. 514 pages

"This is a spellbinding story that keeps your attention from beginning to the end. The book makes you look at World War II beyond Hitler. Most people realize that there is more to war than what the press reveals but Conrad John brings what's on the inside to the forefront. Great job!!" - Anita

"I love it when more and more information about WW II is written into books so that we can all see the real mechanics of the greatest tragedy of the twentieth century. When you look at all of the players and how they intertwine to lead up to this event that eventually led up to extermination of a race, you understand what goes through men's minds when they are faced with simple confusions that they must solve.
My hat is off to Mr. Johns for his exhaustive research into this forum. And his actions scenes are on par with Tom Clancy. Very good read." T.M.

"What a read Masters of War is. Mr. John is to be congratulated. The novel is a terrific piece of work, which is exciting, informative, and very well written." J.M.
