 About the Book 

Perhaps Kirsts best novel, The Lieutenant Must Be Mad sees a Wermacht officer returned with wounds from the Eastern Front to a hot-bed of corruption and vice in Berlin. With something of his front-line bonhomie intact, the Lieutenant quickly runs afoul of the diseased madness of Nazi Germanys final years, and is inevitably drawn into the July 20th conspiracy against Hitler.Riveting from beginning to end, I read this in one sitting- Kirst details the considerable culture shock of a front-line soldier who finds his real enemy to the rear. Recommended.
